Crusade Burger Bar’s The Constable

We follow Crusade Burger Bar on Facebook.  It’s a joint in the suburbs of Illinois that makes amazingly creative burgers and their milkshakes – they have a heck of a team putting ideas together.  I found out about the place from a friend I went to high school with who had shared a post of their’s awhile back.  Sadly, we haven’t had a chance to actually visit this place as of yet, but we are inspired by their inspiration. The burger is supposed to be topped with strawberry jalapeno jam which I wanted to try my hand at making but time was not on my side, so I settled for strawberry jelly and thinly sliced jalapeno.  This is more of a guide then a true recipe, but I am going to share my basic grilled hamburger recipe. Also, when you see the topping list you may have a what in the world pop in your head, but I can totally attest to this burger being out of this world amazing!  The picture doesn’t even come close to doing how good this was justice.

Crusade Burger Bar The Constable

Servings – 4

Ingredients

  • 1 pound 85/15 ground beef
  • Salt
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • 4 slices white cheddar
  • 8 slices of cooked bacon (I prefer to cook my in the oven, I’ll get a post on that soon)
  • Strawberry Jam
  • 1 thinly sliced jalapeno (if they are small or you like lots of jalapeno, you may need more then one)
  • Peanut Butter
  • Arugula
  • 4 burger buns

Directions

  1. Heat up your grill
  2. Gentle form the ground beef into 4 patties.  Don’t over work the meat.
  3. Sprinkle a little bit of salt and pepper on both sides of the patties.
  4. Once your grill is hot, cook your burgers to your preference.  For a great quick guide on timing for different levels of doneness, check out this post from CharBroil’s website – How long does it take to grill the perfect hamburger.
  5. Add the sliced cheese a minute or two before your cook time is over to allow the cheese to melt.
  6. Spread strawberry jam on the bottom of the bun and place 2 pieces of bacon on top.  Burger goes next followed by a handful of arugula.  Spread the peanut butter on the top of the bun and add the jalapenos.  Put it all together.
  7. Enjoy!
