Ingredients

Eggs 2 , well beaten

Fresh jalapeno pepper 1 , finely chopped
Red bell pepper 1/8 , finely chopped (equal to the amount of jalapeno pepper)

Directions

MAKING

For Patties:

1. In a large bowl, combine beaten eggs, salt, ketchup, jalapeno pepper, red bell pepper, white onion and breadcrumbs. Mix thoroughly with electric mixer on medium speed.

2. Add ground beef, and mix thoroughly with mixer on medium or high speed.

3. Form meat mixture into 5 patties and grill on electric kitchen grill. (If using an outdoor grill, place the patties on aluminum foil, so that they do not crumble and fall apart)

4. When meatloaf patties are done all the way through, remove them from grill and place on paper towel to drain.

To Assemble:

5. Spread the bottom half of a bun with Tomato Bourbon Mayonnaise. Place a meatloaf patty on top, followed by a cheese slice.

6. Place some lettuce and a tomato slice on the top slice of bun. Close the sandwich with the top of the bun.

SERVING

7. Serve with whipped loaded potatoes and iced tea.
