Tucked between slices of Texas toast, these burgers exude the flavors of the Lone Star State. They’re made from a special brisket burger blend and grilled to juicy perfection, then slathered with Goode’s barbecue sauce, a legendary tomato-based sauce from a beloved Texas restaurant.
2 lb. LaFrieda brisket burger blend
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
4 slices cheddar cheese
8 slices Texas toast
Melted unsalted butter for brushing
Goode’s original barbecue sauce for serving
Pickled jalapeño slices for serving
Sliced red onion for serving
Prepare a medium-hot fire in a grill.
Divide the burger blend into 4 portions, each 8 oz. Using a double patty press according to the manufacturer’s instructions, form 4 patties. Season with salt and pepper.
Place the burgers on the grill and cook for 5 minutes. Turn the burgers over and place a slice of cheese on each one. Cook for 5 minutes more for medium, or until done to your liking.
Meanwhile, lightly brush the Texas toast on one side with melted butter. Place the bread on the grill and cook, turning once, until lightly toasted, about 1 minute per side.
Place half of the bread slices, buttered side down, on a platter and place a burger on each slice. Top with barbecue sauce and pickled jalapeño and onion slices. Cover each with one of the remaining bread slices, buttered side up. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
