Franks Burgers

Pairs well with:

Chenin Blanc

This wine is bursting with crisp, refreshing fruit flavors like apple, pear, and melon, making you want to swing your legs off a dock at sunset.

I wanted a burger with a little punch, but not a knock out blow.


1.5 Lbs. of 90/10 ground chuck

1 23 oz. Bottle of Franks Red Hot sauce

6 slices of pepper jack cheese

1 pack of Wholly Guacamole

1 Mixing bowl

1 Pack of aluminum foil

1 Outdoor grill

1 Pack of 6 Earth Grain Thin Buns

1 Head of lettuce (optional)

2 Beefsteak tomatoes (optional)

1 Vidalia Onion (optional)


1) Place the 1.5 lbs of chuck in the mixing bowl

2) Mix in about 8 oz of Franks Red Hot sauce

3) Mix the chuck and sauce by hand for about 1-2 minutes

4) Pat the mixture out into 6 patties

5) Take the aluminum foil, and make 6 individual bowls big enough to place the burgers in, and with enough to pinch the top of the foil closed.

6) Place the patties in the bowls.

7) Pour 2-3 oz of franks Red Hot sauce in each bowl, and pinch shut

8) Cook on top rack of grille, and cook on medium heat for 20-30 minutes, opening the aluminum foil several time while cooking to flip burgers

9) When the burgers are thoroughly cooked, open the foil, and place 1 slice of pepper jack cheese on each burger

10) Place each cooked burgers on 1 Earth Grain bun, add 1 tbsp of Wholly Guacamole on each burger, and if desired, lettuce, tomato, and onion
