Homemade is better than any of that fast food. Jazz up that burger. Just for adults! I got this from Pioneerwoman and we just love it. The various flavors just somehow work perfectly. If you like this recipe see others of mine at

    Mince the jalapeno (with or without the seeds) and mix with the mayonnaise. Set aside.

    When nearly ready to eat, butter the rolls, and brown/grill until butter melted and they are lightly toasted.
  • 6
    Place the burger on the bun, add a tablespoon or so of the cheese, cover with a mound of the onions. Slather the top with the mayo, and then sit down and eat.
