Bacon Fig & Gorgonzola Burger

bacon_fig_gorgonzola_burger

Michael and I went to a restaurant in town called Eureka’s for lunch one day and that is what inspired this recipe.  Eureka’s specialized in gourmet burgers and is absolutely delicious. I ordered their Fig Marmalade Burger (which I’m still not sure why the fig spread is called a “marmalade.” I thought marmalades were made of citrus fruit with a peel…) and loved the sweet fig and bacon combination. I revised it a bit by doing gorgonzola instead of goat cheese so there was more of a “bite” to it. I’ve now made it 4 or 5 times and twice for dinner parties. Its easy, delicious and definitely a crowd pleaser.  Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients: Serves 4

4 hamburger patties

4 hamburger bun

1 cup crumbled gorgonzola

fig jam

8 strips of bacon cooked crisp

arugula

Directions:

Grill burger patties on a outdoor grill until you’ve reached desired doneness. Spread fig jam on both the top and bottom of the bun. Layer in the burger, gorgonzola, bacon and arugula. Serve and enjoy!
