Apricot and Pepperjack Burger

There are certain flavors that just compliment each other. Sweet and salty are one of them. Who hasn't gone crazy over a chocolate covered pretzel? Sweet and spicy are another. If you are amongst those that love sweet with spicy you will love this. Don't let the title scare you off. This is to die for. This burger is ooey with pepperjack cheese and then cooled off with avocado and Saucy Susan apricot sauce. The sweet of the sauce compliments the pepperjack cheese. One try and you will be hooked.

Saucy Susan
Pepperjack cheese
Ciabatta rolls or the equivalent (I'm using day old rolls)

I wont even try to tell you how to BBQ burgers. Tonight it is just the Fireman and I so I am pan frying.

To assemble, butter and grill your rolls. I like to flip them over and add cheese to both sides of the bun. Some add cheese to the meat but for this I like to add it to the bread.

Add sliced avocado to one side of the roll. I like to smash it in place.

Add the sauce to the patty. Just do it! It will work!
This reminds me of a burger you would get at some overpriced bistro. But the kicker is that you make it at home and can enjoy it being reasonably priced.
