Peanut Butter “Elvis” Burger

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. 

  • Yield:4 servings
  • Prep Time:5 minutes
  • Cook Time:20 minutes
  • Total Time:25 minutes


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 

4 tbsp Peanut Butter & Co. Old Fashioned Smooth 

¼ iceberg lettuce, shredded 

½ red onion, thinly sliced 

4 burger buns 


  1. 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.

  2. Heat a pan until very hot. Season the burger patties with salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes each side, or to taste.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
