Peanut Butter “Elvis” Burger
This is a burger recipe with a rather unusual topping – peanut butter! It’s a bit wacky and will be most suited to the hardcore peanut butter lover, which is why I’ve named it the Elvis Burger.

About 1 pound/450 grams ground beef
8 rashers smoked bacon
1 thumb sized piece of ginger, peeled and grated
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tbsp chipotle chili flakes
¼ iceberg lettuce, shredded
½ red onion, thinly sliced
4 burger buns
Divide the ground beef into 4 equally sized balls, then flatten into patties and set aside. Grill the bacon rasher until crisp, then chop into smallish pieces and set aside.
Heat a pan until very hot. Season the burger patties with salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes each side, or to taste.
While the burgers are cooking, make the peanut butter sauce by heating a tablespoon of oil in a pan and gently softening the ginger and garlic for a couple of minutes, stirring. Add the chipotle flakes for a further minute, then take the pan off the heat and add the Peanut Butter & Co. Old Fashioned Smooth, along with a tablespoon of hot water (don’t use cold water). Mix well.
When the burgers and sauce are ready, place a little iceberg lettuce on each bun, followed by some onion, a burger, then some of the peanut butter sauce. Top with crispy bacon pieces and the top half of the bun. Eat immediately.
