The Firecracker Burger

Meet The Firecracker Burger. It is the latest addition to our endlessly delicious Fancy Burger roster.

What makes the Firecracker so great?


The Firecracker Burger

It’s based on the Crispy Jalapeno Burger from BJs Restaurant & Brewhouse. The “crispy jalapeno” part of our burger comes from the beer-battered jalapenos slices I shared with y’all last week.

Those delicious bites of deep-fried napalm are then doused with some cool chipotle ranch dressing. Add some crispy red onions, juicy tomato slices, and a slice of melty Monterrey Jack?

It’ll be the best burger you have all week. Guaranteed.

I KNEW you would have an awesome used for those fried jalapenos!! Other than just eating them, which is probably as creative as I would have gotten!
