Florida Georgia Line also have a recipe in the new cookbook, ‘Country Music’s Greatest Eats,’ out May 6; it’s their:
Serrano Pepper Burger
1 lb. serrano peppers
2 tbsp. olive oil
3 lbs. ground chuck
Freshly ground black pepper
1 lb. pepper Jack cheese, sliced in 1⁄4-inch slices
12 hamburger buns
Toppings: mustard, mayonnaise, ketchup, lettuce, tomato slices
Preheat one side of a grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high); leave other side unlit. Brush peppers with olive oil. Arrange peppers in a grill basket or on an aluminum foil tray over unlit side of grill, and grill, covered with grill lid, 10 to 15 minutes or until peppers begin to shrivel. Transfer peppers to lit side of grill, and grill, covered with grill lid, 8 to 10 minutes on each side or until lightly charred. Remove peppers to a wire rack; cool to room temperature. Remove stems, slice in half lengthwise, and sprinkle with coarse salt. Preheat unlit side of grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high). Shape meat evenly into 12 patties; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill patties 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Place 2 to 3 pepper halves over each patty; top evenly with cheese slices. Grill 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Butter buns, and toast on grill. Serve patties on toasted buns with desired toppings—and get ready to enjoy a great burger!
