Pepper Jack Hamburgers


1 bag whole wheat hamburger bread
1 lb ground beef
1/3 cup bread crumbs
¼ cup chimichurri salsa (recipe below)

Chimichurri Salsa

1 bunch parsley
1 tsp fresh chopped oregano
4 garlic cloves
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
½ cup olive oil
Cumin, salt, and pepper to taste

Chop parsley and garlic cloves. Put them in the food processor until they look fine. Add oregano, vinegar, and lemon juice. Pulse until incorporated. Slowly add the olive oil while the food processor is running to emulsify the sauce. Season to taste.


3 tbs mayo
1 tbs sour cream
1 tsp ketchup
A pinch of cayenne (optional)
1 tsp chimichurri sauce
¼ onion finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

Season the meat with chimichurri, salt and pepper. Incorporate bread crumbs and make the patties putting a square of the Pepper Jack cheese in the middle. Cook in the grill for 2 minutes on 1 side and about 1 ½ minutes on the other side. Remove and cover with foil

Mix all of the ingredients for the dressing and smear in the hamburger bread. Put lettuce, tomato, and the hamburger patty to arrange the hamburger and enjoy!
