Do you feel lucky punk? Well do ya?!? If not you will when you take a bite out of this burger! I came up with this idea about 4-5 months ago at a brew house in Sparks, NV. I think it might even be called "The Brew House" but I can not remember and Zo is not readily available to ask. They have a burger on their menu called Make Your Own. I am not the biggest fan of this restaurant's food but we go there because Zo loves their fish and chips. I decided since I didn't really like their food I would make my own idea. I told them the seasonings I wanted used, the toppings I wanted and the kind of bun I wanted it on. They did their best to make it just how I said to and in doing so I was served the rough draft of this burger. I say rough draft because I didn't actually make it and it needed to be tinkered with the idea a bit. Natalie was coming over for her birthday, the weather was nice, so I went to tinkering! Enjoy!

Burgers
1 1/2 lb ground Angus beef
1 large egg
1/4 cup red onion (diced)
2 cloves garlic (diced)
1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/8 tsp kosher salt
4 potato hamburger buns

Topping
1 package Cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup white cheddar (shredded)
1 tbsp 1 tsp Parmesan Reggiano (finely shredded)
1/2 4.5 oz can diced green chilies
1 6 oz jar artichoke hearts in oil (diced)
1/2 cup green bell pepper (chopped)
1 1/2 cup mushrooms (chopped)
1/2 cup onions (chopped)
2 tbsp Mayonnaise
1 splash liquid smoke (mesquite)
fresh cracked pepper
2 tsp Sweet unsalted European butter
1 tbsp sharp cheddar
1 tbsp mozzarella

Topping
Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Once melted sauteed green bell pepper, mushrooms and onions for 7-8 minutes. Mix together with rest of ingredients in bowl, pour into a baking safe dish and broil for 4 minutes with oven door cracked open.

Burger
Preheat grill to med high heat.

In a large bowl whisk egg together will all dry seasonings until even. Mix the remaining burger ingredients together with egg until mixed through. Make 4 even hamburger patties with mixture and sit on plate. Grill each patty for 4-5 minutes, flip and grill for another 4-5 minutes or desired doneness is reached. (The last 2 minutes of grilling add buns to top grill to toast.)

Add desired condiments to burger buns and then place patty on bun with desired amount of topping, ENJOY!
