Applebee's new Bourbon Black & Bleu Burger - 7 oz. patty with blackened seasoning, bourbon caramelized onions & mushrooms, Jack cheese, bleu cheese crumbles and Applewood smoked bacon, served on a toasted bakery bun with smoky mayo.

SERVES 4

2 pounds 80/20 Ground Beef
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
Tabasco Sauce, To Taste
2 Tablespoons butter
1 shot of bourbon
1 whole Red Onion, Sliced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
4 slices Monterey Jack cheese
8 slices cooked bacon
1/4 cup Real Mayonnaise
Kaiser Rolls
1 cup Crumbled Blue Cheese



Place the ground beef into a medium mixing bowl. Add 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon of ground black pepper. Add a few dashes of Tabasco sauce. With your hands, mix the meat and seasoning well. Set aside.
Next, for the vegetables, heat a medium skillet over low heat. Add in 2 tablespoons butter. Dump in the sliced onions and mushrooms. Now add a generous amount of bourbon. Give it a toss to combine the ingredients, and then allow the vegetables to simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes, tossing occasionally.
While the vegetables are sauteing, make the spicy mayo: Place ¼ cup mayonnaise into a small bowl and simply add a few dashes of Tabasco. Stir together and test for taste.
Next, slice the Kaiser rolls in half and spread each half with about ½ tablespoon of butter. Place them face down on a grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Lightly grill the rolls so they’ll be tough enough to hold the spicy mayo. Let the rolls cool on a plate until you need them.
Form the meat into two patties and place on a grill pan or skillet over medium to medium-low heat. Allow each to cook about 3 minutes, then using a spatula, rotate 45 degrees, leaving it on the same side.
Flip the burger, add the cheese and cook it for a couple of minutes, rotating it 45 degrees again to get the nice grill marks.
Now add a large helping of the vegetables over top of the burger , followed by an equally generous helping of crumbled blue cheese and 2 slices of bacon.
As it finishes cooking, spread the spicy mayo on the Kaiser rolls and transfer the burger onto the bottom half of the bun. Top with a handful of greens and top with the bun.
