With strawberry and melon essences, this American original is perfectly at home with however you like to unwind.


2 pounds ground beef
1/2 pound HOT Italian sausage, ground
1 medium onion, chopped fine
5 cloves of garlic, chopped fine
2 jalepeno peppers, chopped fine 
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoons coarse sea salt
1 Tablespoon coarse black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Whole-wheat buns



Combine ground beef, sausage, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, chopped onion, garlic, jalapeno peppers, mustard and Worcestershire sauce in large bowl. Using hands, mix until all ingredients are fully integrated. Add grated cheddar cheese and fold into mixture until cheese is evenly distributed, but do not over mix. Best to let mixture sit in a covered container inside refrigerator for 24 hours to let flavors fully marry, but can be used immediately if you just can't wait. Form into 4 to 5 meaty burgers and grill on a hot BBG Grill. Serve on a wholesome whole-wheat bun with your favorite condiment – which you may find to be totally unnecessary after you taste these beauties – and a nice glass of your favorite wine! Heaven on Earth!
