Cooking for 2 people

Ingredients

  • 2 fresh ears of corn, shucked & silk removed
  • 0.5 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 burger patties
  • 4 slices Pepper Jack cheese
  • 0.5 cup iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 2 brioche buns
  • vegetable oil, as needed

Lime Mayo

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. garlic, peeled
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tbsp. Cholula hot sauce
  • kosher salt & black pepper, as needed

1 Food Prep

  • First, combine the ingredients for the lime mayo sauce in a food processor. Pulverize for 15 seconds until smooth. Then pour into a small bowl and reserve.

  • Next, for the grilled corn salad, in a small mixing bowl add a ½ cup of the lime mayo, ½  cup of chopped cilantro and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set this aside until the corn is charred and ready to be added.
  • Then, rinse 2 fresh ears of corn.
  • Finally, prepare the lettuce and tomato toppings. Slice 1 large tomato, and prepare ½ cup of shredded iceberg lettuce, and set aside.

2 Grill Prep

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Brush the corn lightly with oil, and place it on the grill. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, rotating the corn regularly to ensure it doesn’t burn.

  • Remove the corn from the grill, and place it on a cutting board. Remove kernels from the corn cob using a chef’s knife.

  • For the grilled corn salad, add the kernels to the small mixing bowl that was prepped earlier with the lime mayo and cilantro mixture. Mix this together well.
  • Season the burger patties with salt and pepper on each side.
  • Drizzle oil over the burger patties evenly, and place them directly over the coals.
  • Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side until they reach an internal temperature of 160°F on a digital meat thermometer.

  • Add cheese slices to each burger patty, and allow them to melt.
  • Brush the buns with oil, and toast them on the cooler side of the grate for 2 to 3 minutes until toasted and warm.

  • Spread a generous portion of the lime mayo onto the top and bottom bun.
  • Add the shredded lettuce, sliced tomato and burger patty to the bun.
  • Top with the grilled corn salad, and enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beat & Messiest Burger EVER! I followed all of the directions exactly. I have to say, this was the best burger I’ve ever tasted! It was also the messiest 😂. I didn’t think I’d like corn on a burger, but I was very surprised to find that it was so good! & the lime mayo was spectacular! My bf said he would eat it on almost anyhing. I definitely recommend this recipe!! The only variation I made was not having a full tomato. Instead I used grape tomatoes.
