Jalapeño popper topped burgers are two favourites mashed together. Bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers are the ultimate burger topping.

Jalapeno popper burgers

There are many reasons I love my husband. He is kind, he is funny, he is an AMAZING father, he’s a pretty fantastic kisser and his behind looks uh-mazing in his jeans. But one of the reasons I love him the most is that he thought of these burgers. Let’s go back to the beginning of this whole story. A while ago I made jalapeño poppers (as I do quite often, actually) and while we were shoving them in our faces, he said “Imagine these ON a burger.” I fell in love all over again. Both with him and with the idea of a jalapeño popper burger. I mean, I love bacon, cheese and jalapeños on a burger, but this. This was genius.

Jalapeno popper

So a week ago we made these when my brothers came over for dinner and it was confirmed. These are the BEST burgers all of us had ever tasted. The poppers are definitely the star of the how (as it should be). They add a crisp, smokey, salty, spicy hit to the burgers which is just absolutely insane. It is so good that as I sit here at 9 in the morning, I am salivating and craving one. They are so good that I’ve decided to make them again for my birthday in a week because I can not imagine celebrating my birthday in any other way. Just too good. I can’t even talk about it any more. Just look at the photos then go buy the ingredients and make these immediately. Then come back and thank me later.
