You will be amazed at my Peanut Butter and Jelly Burger. It’s nutty and salty from the peanut butter and a little spicey from the hot red pepper jelly.
This post is part of a fun crazy burger grill giveaway hosted by GirlCarnivore but this amazing Peanut Butter and Jelly Burger is all my own creation.
Oh, baby – take a look at this Doubledecker, Peanut Butter and Red Pepper Jelly Cheese Burger. And if you think that’s a mouth full to say just wait until you take a big bite.
It’s National Burger Month and I am joining Kita Roberts, Girl Carnavor and lots of other burger-loving folks to create the best burger on the planted. Every day this month many burger-loving friends are creating new burgers to keep your grill full all summer long. Make sure you check them out on Instagram at #burgermonth or any of the hashtags below. But first, let’s talk burgers.
Why did I choose to make a Peanut Butter and Jelly Burger?
I love anything salty and sweet and these are exactly the flavors I taste when I eat a PBJ sandwich – sweet from the jam or jelly and salty and nutty from the peanut butter. And if you’ve ever put a little cheese on your PBJ then you know that’s another amazing flavor blast. So I thought, why not make a PBJ cheeseburger? If you read my recipes on a regular basis, you’ll find I like a little heat which is why I added red pepper jelly and not something like grape jelly or apple jelly (although both of those would be great substitutes). I also wanted a little crunch, so I added some store-bought onion strings…you know – those crazy addictive little onion pieces that are so good.
What kind of cheese goes best on hamburgers?
- You want a cheese that has a good melting point. Some of the best are:
- Monterey Jack
How do you make a great burger?
A great burger is made with a mix of 80% lean and 20% fat known as 80/20 Ground Chuck. The 80/20 mix provides enough fat to help keep the burger moist while still providing great flavor.
How do you keep a burger most?
My secret is butter – yes – butter. I put 2 pats of salted butter on each patty. I start with very cold butter and break into small pieces and press the pieces into the burger. I place the burgers on the grill butter side up so the little pieces of butter melt into the burger. The butter gives the burgers great flavor and adds moisture.
What’s a “pat” of butter?
It’s that little square piece of butter on a small cardboard paper in restaurants. The actual size can be different but in most cases, it’s about 1/2 tablespoon.
How do you keep burgers from falling apart?
- Start with cold hamburger.
- If you are adding a lot of spices and other ingredients do not to over mix it or it will become tough.
- Flip them as little as possible and if you can, only flip them once.

- 1.5 – 1.75 lbs. 80/20 ground beef
- 1 TBS Worchestshire sauce

To make the burgers:
- Heat BBQ grill or stove-top grill to medium-high.
- Combine ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper.
- Make four equal-sized patties.
- Drop small pieces of the butter equally on each burger and push it in slightly.
- Place patties on the grill butter side up.
- Grill both sides to your desired temperature.
- When burgers are almost done, place 1 slice of cheese on each burger and continue to cook until the cheese begins to melt.
- While burgers are cooking, brown the hamburger buns by splitting them in half and placing them face down on the grill for a few minutes.
- Spread TBS of peanut butter on to the bottom halves of the buns.
- Place 1 burger patty on the peanut buttered bun.
- Place a second patty on top of the first.
- Spread the top buns with TBS each of the hot pepper jelly.
- Place two TBS of onion crisps or straws on the top cheeseburger and place the top bun with the pepper jelly on top.
