Ingredients

For the Burgers:

  • 1.5 lbs Ground bison or lean ground beef
  • 1 large Egg
  • 4 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Rolled old fashioned oats
  • 12 Slices Kraft 2% Milk Singles *
  • 6 Small jalapeno peppers thinly sliced
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1 Cup Whole wheat Panko crumbs
  • Olive oil for frying
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Jalapeno Tabasco Sauce
  • 3/4 Cup Philadelphia 1/3 Fat Cream cheese
  • 1/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp Kraft Reduced Fat Ranch Dressing
  • 6 Whole wheat kaiser roll buns

Instructions

To Make the Burgers:

To Make the Crispy Jalapenos:

  1. Heat a medium sized sauce panon medium heat, and pour just enough oil into it to just cover the bottom.
  2. Place the egg white in a small bowl, and the panko on a small plate.
  3. Dunk the sliced jalapenos into the egg white, and then into the panko. The panko will not stick to the outside very well, but make sure you pack it into the center of the jalapeno slices.
  4. Fry the jalapeno slices in olive oil, until golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel line plate, and blot off the excess oil. Set aside.
  5. In a medium bowl, mix together the Jalapeno sauce and the cream cheese. Adjust the level of spiciness to your preference.

To Assemble:

  1. Spread some of the cream cheese mixture on half of each kaiser roll, and spread the Ranch dressing on the other half.
  2. Place on patty on each roll, and top with the crispy jalapenos.
  3. DEVOUR

Recipe Notes

*This is 2 slices per patty. You can easily use 1. I just like cheese.
