Washington Redskins Red vs Blue Burger

Dave Beaulieu August 24th, 2015

While the Mid-Atlantic has it's own authentic regional cuisine, I couldn't resist making Washington's burger with a political spin.  The Red vs Blue burger uses roasted red bell pepper to provide a sweet and savory flavor (not to mention the color red) to the burger. This is offset by the salty and tangy blue cheese melted over the top.  It's a really simple combo that packs a wallop of flavor.  

Ingredients
  • Burger bun
  • ½ pound of ground beef 
  • Blue cheese 
  • Red bell pepper
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • Olive oil
Directions
  1. Roast pepper over gas jet for five minutes, turning occasionally until fully blackened.
  2. Form ground beef into a dimpled patty.
  3. Put roasted pepper into a ziplock bag, and seal the bag to steam the pepper.
  4. Remove the pepper from the bag and peel the skin off.
  5. Sear the patty in a hot oiled pan for about 2 minutes on each side.
  6. After flipping the patty over, add blue cheese on top.
  7. Cover pan so the cheese melts.
  8. Remove patty from pan and let rest 2 minutes.
  9. Split the bun.
  10. Place roasted, peeled red pepper onto half of the bun.
  11. Place blue cheese burger on top.
  12. Place top of bun.

That's one great burger, and one of my wife's all-time favorites!  Not because I babysat our three-year-old while filming a cooking video and making lunch for the kids all at the same time, but because it's a damn good burger!
