  • Total Time: 25 minutes



1 lb ground organic dark meat chicken, grass-fed beef or lamb, or vegan meat product

1 small jalapeño, seeded and diced

1 slice jack, cheddar or pepper jack cheese; Dairy Free options: we used Field Roast’s original Chao slices but also love Follow Your Heart block (melts really nicely)

23 tbsp kite hill soft almond cheese, we used truffle chive and dill flavor – or sheep feta crumbled

1/2 onion, sliced

56 shiitake mushrooms, sliced

Handful of arugula

1 tbsp olive oil

Gluten free buns: we love Udi’s, Canyon Bakehouse, Greenlite and Bread SRSLY

Condiments: Aioli, mayo, ketchup, mustard, relish, thousand island


– Heat pan to medium low. Add olive oil, sliced onions and mushrooms. Cover and cook down for 5-10 minutes until nicely browned and caramelized.

– Half jalapeño, remove seeds, (or leave in for lots of heat), and then dice. (careful to wash hands after touching the pepper so you dont touch your eyes… you know, ouch!)

– Form meat into 2-3 patties. Flatten patties and in the center, add jalapeños and crumble kite hill cheese. Mold burger around added ingredients and reform burger patties.

-Season burgers with salt, pepper, and or garlic powder and all season salt.

– Place patties seasoning side down on top of caramelized mushrooms and onions. Cook each burger for 5 minutes each side, covered.

– Place cheese on top of burger with 1 min left of cooking. Cover to melt the cheese.

– Toast bun and then stack burger, arugula, and additional diced jalapeños and crumbled cheese if so desired.


Great paired with your favorite ranch and oven roasted fries!
