Jalapeño Goat Cheese Burgers

Jalapeño Goat Cheese Burgers


Today we reached the temperature of 29 degrees Celsius by mid-morning. It’s going to be a scorcher and I am not complaining. Days like these there is only one type of food I like to cook and that is barbecue. Barbecue is a cuisine all it’s own in my world; there is something about biting into a big juicy barbecue burger with a cold one to sip on that screams summer has arrived.


Nothing but homemade will do when it comes to hamburgers; they are easy to make, full of flavour and juice. I think I drooled a little right there. Ahem.


Yesterday I combined two of my favourite flavours into my hamburger recipe, Jalapeño’s and goat cheese, for a spicy sweet combination of perfection. I know, I know; I use Jalapeño’s often and I rave about goat cheese but you have to try it. Seriously, try it.

Total time
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: American
Serves: 10
  • 2 lbs of lean hamburger
  • 1 Jalapeño, diced
  • ½ bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp onion, minced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • Juice of 1 lime
  1. Mix by had all but the goat cheese ingredients until mixed through.
  2. Crumble 1 package of goat cheese in large chunks and mix into hamburger mix gently but throughout.
  3. Shape into hamburger sized patties onto wax paper. Make the patties slightly larger than you bun size because they will shrink a bit while cooking.
  4. Cook approximately 10-12 minutes on low to medium heat in your barbecue, flipping midway. Each barebecue is different so keep a close eye to avoid burning. Brush on your favourite barbecue sauce, if preferred.
  5. Top with your favourite burger ingredients. I topped with a little extra goat cheese, for added flavour.
