Crunchy Onion Jalapeno Burger has the right amount of crunch and spice! This is my favorite homemade burger recipe. You can make the patties ahead and freeze them.

Crunchy Onion Jalapeno Burger
If this is your first time stopping by here you might not know how much I love a good burger. Once in awhile I like to change the toppings on my burgers, not that I get tired of bacon, avocado and tomato, but I’d like to know what else is good. You know what? A Crunchy Onion Jalapeno Burger is reeeeally good. Really, really, really good. Melted smoked gouda cheese (or monterey jack) on a flavorful patty hot off the grill, topped with jalapenos and crunchy onions. Don’t forget to grill the buns and spread on your favorite barbecue sauce!
It’s been extremely cold here for the past week, at least what we consider to be cold. If you’re planning on making these burgers for a tailgate get together, I admire your bravery. The NFLShop.com had a sale recently so I ordered a Seahawks hat with a pompom on top, thinking it would be warm. Thankfully it is. My daughter has her eyes on it so I can’t really set it down or she’ll take it. Wear your own hat, doggone it!
I also ordered some party supplies for game day. Should have ordered gloves.
Not a Hawks fan? Nobody’s perfect. 🙂 Just kidding. We can totally still be friends and talk about burgers.
Do you have a favorite burger topping combo that you love? Maybe you have a good luck burger ritual that gets you through game day? I’d love to hear about it in the comments! My go to burger is usually the bacon burger with smashed avocado. The bun is totally optional.
You can purchase this tablecloth with your favorite team logo over at the NFLShop.com. This is one of the Table Topit fitted tablecloths that behave like a fitted sheet for your table. Mine fits nicely and cleans up easily too. This one is labeled as washable and a liquid spill wiped off with absolutely no evidence left so I like it. If I get a second table, I’d buy another one. It stays on the table when it gets a little windy and I don’t have to fight with it like the regular tablecloths.
Also shown in the photographs above is the party pack with cups, plates, napkins and utensils. You can order yours with your favorite NFL team logo. The cups are 20 oz., a good size even though I don’t know why we were sipping on cold drinks this particular day!
- 2 ib. ground beef
- 2 tsp. onion powder
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. garlic salt
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- 1 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
- 1 tsp. Worcestershire
- ½ cup of panko bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- burger buns
- barbecue sauce
- smoked gouda cheese, sliced
- crunchy onions
- jalapenos, I use the sliced jalapenos in a jar
- Add ground beef, onion powder, garlic powder, garlic salt, sea salt, pepper and Worcestershire in a mixing bowl.
- Measure in the panko, add to the bowl along with the egg.
- Mix together just until evenly combined.
- Form into patties and separate layers with parchment paper.
- Refrigerate until you're ready to grill.
- Toast burger buns very, very briefly on the grill or in the oven then spread barbecue sauce on the top inside of the bun.
- Top each patty with smoked gouda cheese, jalapenos and crunchy onions.
It usually takes me less than 20 minutes to cook all of these on a hot grill. Time will vary depending on how many patties you make (thickness), the temp and how much room you have on your grill.
Make and freeze by placing them on wax or parchment paper in a single layer and placing in the freezer. After completely frozen, place in a large plastic zip lock bag.
