The Freshman Cook: Cheeseburger in Paradise/#FoodieExtravaganza

What is a cheeseburger in paradise? Well, for me, it is a cheeseburger that I made myself. It’s grilled  outside on the grill and it is topped with tropical goodness. It is eaten on the backyard porch, because that is my paradise! I stuffed my ground chuck burger with little chunks of pineapple and mango. Then I topped it with manchego cheese and fruit sauce. If you are not in paradise, you will be when you eat this!

Paradise Cheeseburger

(makes 1 burger)

1/4 pound Ground Chuck

1 Mango

1/4 cup Pineapple Chunks

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 Avocado


 small amount of Manchego Cheese-shredded

1 Brioche Bun

Green Leaf Lettuce

Peel and cut your mango and place 1/8 of a cup in the 

blender with 1/8 cup of  pineapple chunks. 

 I used canned

pineapple chunks with no sugar added.

Blend until liquified.

In a saucepan, mix together the liquified fruit

and add the sugar. Bring the mix to a boil,

then let it boil to let it reduce down until it is thick.

Cut 1/8 of a cup of the pineapple chunks in to tiny

pieces. Cut the same amount of mango also. 

Reform your burger to incorporate the pineapple and the

mango into your burger patty.

Smash up your avocado and mix it with 

a small dab of mayo.

Start grilling your burger. Sprinkle some pepper on the top.

I cook each side for 2 minutes and I flip it

 so that each side is cooked twice.

When I flip the burger for the last time,

I added the cheese.

Once the burger is cooked, spread your avocado

spread on the bottom of the bun.

Top the avocado spread with the lettuce and

then the burger.

Place some of the pineapple mango sauce on 

top of the cheese.

I hope you enjoy your Paradise Cheeseburger!
