2 packages Reggae Jammin’ Jerk Beef Burgers (thawed)
5 burger buns
1/2 lb button mushrooms
1/2 lb kale
10 slices of mozzarella cheese singles
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup white wine
3/4 cup coconut oil
5 tbsp garlic butter
4 tbsp spicy mayonnaise
3 tbsp barbeque sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
• Preheat oven to 350°F, spread a thin layer of garlic butter to the underside of the burger buns.
• Place onto a foil lined tray, buttered side up, and toast until golden brown; if necessary flip the buns to toast the tops evenly.
• Pick kale leaves from the stalk, and place in a bowl. Dress the leaves with 1/3 of the coconut oil thoroughly, and season with a little salt and pepper and set aside in a fridge.
• Slice mushrooms thinly and set aside in a bowl.
• In a pan, use the remaining garlic butter and allow it to heat up. Once hot, cook the mushrooms, seasoning them well until they’ve caramelised.
• Once all the liquid has been cooked away, pour in your heavy cream and cook until creamy. Season to taste.
• Set aside once it’s cooked.
• In a non-stick skillet, pour out your coconut oil and allow to heat through.
• Once the pan is hot, cook burgers for four minutes on the first side with the flame on high.
• Flip the burger patties, cooking the other side for three minutes.
• Once cooked, place a slice of cheese on top of each patty, pour in the white wine and cover the pot quickly to create steam and melt the cheese. Cook for two minutes.
• Glaze bottom buns with barbecue sauce.
• Place the two burger patties.
• Add cooked mushrooms.
• Top with a small bunch of kale.
• Spread spicy mayonnaise on the top bun and finish the burger.
• Optional wine pairing Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc.
