FOOD FUN: Peanut Butter Bacon Cheeseburger Recipe

Will a peanut butter bacon cheeseburger catch up in popularity with the long-loved bacon cheeseburger?

This burger is topped with bacon, cheese and peanut butter!

It was developed to offer diners something new and different.

Chef John Franke, on behalf of the Boulder-based SRG Culinary Council, set out to develop some new approaches to classic burger garnishes.

One of the winners was this PB&B Burger (peanut butter and bacon).

The burger is comfort food; the added ingredients offer new palate excitement with a delicious combination of flavors—a combination that most home cooks would never think up on their own.

The base of two beef patties goes onto a King’s Hawaiian hamburger bun, layering on:

  • Creamy peanut butter
  • Sweet-tart blueberry jam
  • Caramelized onions
  • White American cheese*
  • Pepper bacon
    Chef Franke makes his own blueberry jam from scratch, and it adds a unique and delightful flavor impact.

    “The jam adds a tangy, cooling contrast against the peppery bacon and savory beef, and the peanut butter lends a softer flavor,” he says.

    You don’t have to make jam from scratch. Just buy a good brand and counter the sweetness with some balsamic vinegar.

    Or, buy fig jam, which is naturally less sweet.

    Have fun with it!
    By the way, a small drive-in burger stand in the Sedalia, Missouri, introduced a peanut butter–slathered hamburger at an early date—we just don’t know exactly when.

    Known as the guberburger (for goober, a nickname for peanuts), The Wheel Inn topped a burger with peanut butter, mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomato.

    The Wheel Inn was opened from the 1940s until 2007, when it had to close for a highway expansion project. Here’s more about it.

    *We’re not fans of processed American cheese slices in any color. Upgrade the flavor with Cheddar, Gruyère, Jarlsberg or anything else!
