Instructions

For the burgers

  1. Season the ground pork with salt and pepper.
  2. Pat meat into burgers. I made large 1/4 pound burgers. You can make any size then adjust your toppings accordingly.
  3. Mix sauce together. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine jelly, wine, and basil, whisking for about 5 minutes or until pepper jelly melts. Remove from heat, and let mixture cool completely.
  4. Pour ¾ cup pepper jelly mixture into a large zip-top plastic freezer bag and reserve remaining mixture; add pork burgers to bag and coat with marinade. Seal and let marinate for 1½ to 2 hours in refrigerator.
  5. Cook burgers either on a stove top or grill 5 to 6 minutes per side on med-high heat. Turn just once and do not mash this will press the juices and flavor out.
  6. Melt cheese on burgers then remove from heat and build your burger.Build your burger
  7. Layer burger, cheese, pepper jelly sauce, lettuce, basil, and mayonnaise on buns.
