Directions

Cheese Relish

  1. In a large bowl, combine the cheese, banana peppers, reserved banana pepper liquid, chives or scallions, capers, pepper flakes and black pepper. Use your hands to knead the mixture together until evenly blended. Season with salt, then mix again. The relish can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

Cheese Relish Burgers

  1. Divide the cheese into 4 balls, 2 tablespoons each. Flatten each ball into a thick patty. Set aside.
  2. Form the ground beef into 4 balls and flatten into 3/4-inch-thick patties.
  3. Heat a grill to high and brush the rack with the oil. Alternatively, heat a large skillet over high and add the oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Heat until the oil shimmers and begins to smoke.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium, and cook the burgers for 3 minutes on each side. With a spatula, flip again and cook for another 1 ½ minutes on the first side, then for another 1 ½ minutes on the second side for medium-rare.
  5. Top each burger with a patty of the cheese relish, cover the grill or pan, and cook for 1 minute.
  6. Transfer the burgers to the buns and let rest for 2 minutes. Top each burger with lettuce, onion and condiments, as desired.
