It wouldn’t be Memorial Day weekend without a good burger and you all know how much I love a good burger. For the last two weeks I was trying to come up with a new burger to make for the official start of summer…I wanted something unique and delicious. I had been kicking around an idea for a quesadilla burger for a while and decided it was time make my burger dream a food reality.
Stuff You Will Need:
|Cooking Burgers on the Disc-It|
Ground Chuck 80/20
Package of Small Flour Tortillas
Manchego Cheese or Monterey Jack
Sharp Cheddar Cheese
½ Red Onion Chopped
3 Cloves of Garlic
Starting with the 80/20 ground chuck I made some large thin patties, about 1/3 of pound each. I made them big and skinny so they would be almost the same size as the tortilla and cooked them up on the Disc-It. I really like cooking burgers on the disc because its similar to a flattop griddle and makes a great diner style burger.
After cooking the burgers I wiped out the disc and started cooking the jalapenos, onions and garlic in the disc in a little bit of the drippings. I sautéed the jalapeno and onions till the onions were translucent.

I placed a tortilla down on the griddle and topped with a cheese blend of sharp cheddar and manchego cheese. Then added the burger patty.

Topped the burger patty with jalapenos, cheese and then with the second tortilla. I continued cooking until the cheese melted then flipped and cooked until all the cheese was gooey like on a grilled cheese sandwich.

This was my first attempt at making this burger. I originally wanted to make this burger with a quesadilla on each side of the patty, but I thought that might be too much tortilla and the burger would just slide around between the tortillas. All and all it was a very tasty burger, but what’s not to love about beef and cheese between two pieces of bread.
