Back with another Bob’s Burgers burger recipe. Who would have thought a cookbook based on a cartoon has some of the best burger recipes around, I WOULD HAVE. I would consider this burger fancy, I mean it involves a red wine reduction so pull out your fancy napkins and dive in.
- 1 LB Thick-cut Bacon
- 2 Small Onions, finely chopped
- 2 Garlic Cloves, chopped
- 3 TBSP Butter
- 2 Roma Tomatoes, diced
- 1 1/2 Cups Red Wine, I like the Dark Horse red blend
- 1 LB Ground Beef
- 4 oz Bleu Cheese, diced
- 1 Bunch Red Swiss Chard, stalks removed & leaves cut into thick ribbons
- 1 TBSP Olive Oil
- 4 Buns
Let’s Get Cooking
Cook the bacon on the stove top or in the oven, until crispy
Saute the onions and garlic with 2 TBSP of butter over MED heat. Cook until the onions are translucent.
In the same pan, add in the tomatoes + wine and bring the mixture to a boil. Let it cook down for about 2 minutes, then lower the heat and bring to a simmer. Stir occasionally, and after about 5 minutes stir in the other TBSP of butter. Continue to simmer until the reduction thickens, enough to cover the back of a spoon, about 20 minutes. Pour through a straining into a bowl to remove the solids, set the red wine reduction aside.
Fold in the bleu cheese into the beef and gently form into 4 patties. Press a thumb gently into one side of the patty, creating a small indent. Season both sides with salt + pepper. The cheese may ooze a little so be careful flipping.
Saute the chard leaves with a bit of olive oil over MED heat. Add salt and stir continuously until wilted.
Toast the buns and then it’s time to build:
Bottom Bun – Burger – Bacon – Sautéed Chard – Red Wine Reduction – Top Bun
Serve with fries & enjoy!
