Frank's RedHot

A great summer burger is all about the toppings. Zesty sauce, crisp bacon, melted cheese and crunchy onions are the perfect complement to a juicy burger.

Ingredients

  • 6 Tablespoons Frank's RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce
  • 1.5 Pounds Ground beef
  • 6 slices American cheese
  • 6 Hamburger rolls or Kaiser rolls, split
  • 1 Cup French's Crispy Fried Onions
  • 6 slices Bacon, cooked

Directions

Form ground beef into 6 burgers.

Grill burgers over high heat until juices run clear (160°F internal temperature). Top each burger with one slice cheese and cook until cheese melts.

Arrange burgers on rolls. Top with Frank's RedHot, bacon, Crispy Fried Onions, and lettuce and tomato, if desired.

Burger Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Burger Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
