Roasted Piquillo Pepper Burgers

August 2016

Summer is all about having fun and enjoying yourself, and these burgers make it easy for you to feed your guests and do just that. Topped with José Andrés Piquillo Peppers, they have an elegant, smoky flavor that elevates them from their usual casual status at barbecues.

Serves: 8
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 10 min


1 jar José Andrés Roasted Piquillo Peppers

¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons José Andrés Cornicabra Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus more as needed

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 ½ pounds Ground Beef or Pork

8 Mini Hamburger Buns

Salt and black pepper, to taste

Modern Garlic Aioli or mayonnaise, for garnish


In a small bowl, combine the Roasted Piquillo Peppers with ¼ cup of the Olive Oil and set aside.

Mix together the ground meat, Purple Garlic, and 2 tablespoons of the Olive Oil, and season with a pinch each of salt and black pepper. Form the mixture into eight 2-ounce patties.

Preheat a grill to high heat. Grill the patties until their internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, about 5-6 minutes on each side.

Brush the hamburger buns with olive oil and toast on the grill for 1 minute. Spread 1 tablespoon of aioli or mayonnaise onto the bottom half of each toasted bun followed by a burger patty.

Top with the marinated peppers and serve.
