Double Stack Burger with Tomato Jam Recipe

Kasia PaprockiFoodservice, Recipes

Hold the ketchup. This is no ordinary cheeseburger. It’s an extraordinary double cheeseburger dressed with zesty tomato jam. Start with a buttery, Brioche bun, add a handful of arugula and crisp red onion slices, and top it off with two juicy burger patties and creamy Bongards® American cheese. Then add a generous dollop of tomato jam for a burger that’s bursting with robust tomato flavor.

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 pounds tomatoes (5 large), skins and seeds removed, diced
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 ½ pounds ground beef
  • Salt and pepper
  • 8 slices Bongards® American Cheese
  • 1 cup baby arugula leaves
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 Brioche buns

 

PREPARATION

  1. In large saucepan, combine tomatoes, sugar and pepper. Cook over medium heat, stirring often and removing foam, until jam is thickened, about 1 hour; set aside.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. When grill is hot, oil grates to prevent burgers from sticking. Form beef into 8 patties. Place burgers on grill and cook 8-10 minutes or until done (160 degrees F.), turning burgers halfway through cooking time. Top each patty with a slice of cheese during last minute of cooking.
  3. Divide arugula and onions evenly among bun bottoms; top each with 2 burgers, cheese side up.
  4. Top each with tomato jam. Remaining tomato jam will keep for 4 months in the refrigerator.
