National Burger Month Calls for Candied Jalapeno Mozzarella Burgers

There is nothing better than the smell of fresh burgers on the grill that awaken your senses and make your taste buds sizzle! From graduation celebrations to Memorial Day weekend, May is the official start of grilling season. It’s also National Burger Month, which means you have plenty of excuses to ‘cook out’ and indulge in a big, juicy burger!

The best part about creating a delicious burger is its versatility. Burgers can be stuffed and topped with nearly any hearty, spicy, zesty or crunchy ingredient.  

Here’s one of our absolute favorite burgers starring our candied jalapenos that provide just the right amount of a little sweet and a little spice. The combination of the jalapenos and the mozzarella creates a flavor profile unlike any other. Try it out and let us know what you think!
