Blue Ribbon Recipe by
Rhonda Titus

I came up with this burger recipe for competition cookoffs. This burger balances sweet from the sweet bread and caramelized onion with the heat of the jalapeños. This is an award-winning burger that always places high!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

What a great burger! Rib-eye meat makes the burger really moist and it oozes with melty cheese inside and out. There's a crunch from the lettuce. The sweet, spicy, and savory relish combined with the spicy remoulade pumps up the flavors in this burger. Not your run-of-the-mill burger recipe.
