DAY # 11 Best Burger with Secret Sauce

My family is big on cooking out.  Growing up we ate more food that was cooked on the grill than was cooked on the stove.  Having said that, my dad is pretty hard to impress, especially when it comes to burgers.  They are "his thing."  So i was a little nervous about trying a new burger recipe but waited until a night they would be here so that i would have someone elses opinion to blog about.  Well let me tell you, they couldn't stop raving about just how good these burgers were!  We all ate until we were complaining about how full we were.  LOL

So here you go....

Here's my version of the recipe:

2 lbs ground beef 85/15
3/4 cup Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce
3/4 bag of shredded Monterrey Jack Cheese
2 tbs Worcestershire Sauce
2 diced fresh Jalapenos
1 tsp Season It All
1/2 tbs Garlic Powder
1/2 tbs Onion Powder
1/2 tbs Black Pepper
Sesame Seed Buns
Sliced Monterrey Jack Cheese
Special Sauce (recipe follows)

In a large bowl mix meat, jalapenos, sauces, cheese, and seasoning (original recipe called for seasoning to taste, but there was NO WAY i was gonna taste raw meat, so i just went with it.  If you feel my amounts are too much or not enough then go with what you feel is the right amount).  This made 6 patties for us.  I made them about as big around as the buns.  You can either grill them or cook them in a skillet (we did ours on the grill and cooked until well done).  Put the sliced cheese on in the last 5 minutes so that it melts to the patty.  We then loaded our buns with the special sauce, all the veggies, the guacamole, a few slices of bacon, and the patty.  YUMMY!

Special Sauce-
I ended up making 2 versions of this.  My mom LOVED the first one and Mark, Dad, and I liked the second one.  The sauce may sound weird but i promise, it makes the burger soooooo much better!

Version 1:
3/4 cup Mayo
1/4 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup relish
2 tbs worcestershire
dash of garlic powder
dash of season salt

Version 2:
1/2 cup Mayo
2 tbs Ketchup
1 tsp worcestershire
dash of garlic powder
dash of black pepper
dash of cayenne pepper

Don't be afraid to try it just because it sounds grose or looks grose  :)
