I had this recipe for a burger on my phone for years. I would look at it bookmarked on my Blackberry every time I went online. It was a mental note to make that dang burger. And I made it. Last week.
I was the hungriest I could remember being in a very long time. I was hand-shaking, underarm sweating, pale-looking hungry. I rarely ever get that hungry. I couldn’t even steady my hands enough to take decent pictures.
Here is what (little) I have of that Blue Cheese Burger on Ciabatta:
Then, here is the best part….
Yes, that is Sriracha + mayo and it = wow. For real.
That’s all I got from my Blue Cheese Burger with Sriracha Mayo night.
From the first drooling bite, I knew that I was on to something here. You know I love my Tabasco Mayo, but this shiz is on a whole new level.
Like I said, this was a week ago and I have been thinking about it ever since. Thank goodness I am not going to the grocery store this week. Who knows what I would have bought. I decided to test out this Sriracha Mayo and see if it was a fluke or if it was as good as I remembered.
So I made a leftover Turkey Burger + Sriracha Mayo.
Ingredients include (you may want to get a pen): Mayo. This is my favorite kind. I don’t even like mayonnaise. But, there are some cases where it just must be used. If I’m using it, I am using this one.
Yep, that’s it. Just those two.
Directions (keep that pen handy):
Squeeze 2 parts mayo into a ramekin.
Squeeze 1 part Sriracha into said ramekin.
And mix these two together.
TA DA! It’s that easy. Now, I added mine to a Blue Cheese Turkey burger. What is it about hot and spicy + cool and creamy? Whatever it is… it works.
I spread it, thickly, on my top bun.
Mmmm… look at that color! I bet it would be good on the top and bottom bun. Hmmm… food for thought.
Then I smooshed that burger together. It looks simple enough, but that sucka is jam-packed full of spicy flavor.
Seriously. You have to try this. Talk about jazzing things up! I would suggest serving it with something with blue cheese as well, but I swear it could go with anything. I was dipping my fries in it also. So if you have some Sriracha lying around…. and some mayonnaise… mix ‘em together. You just gotta.
