Juicy Burgers with Prune Onion Jam

YOU GUYS!

This fat, juicy burger with prune onion jam is MY new jam!

Dripping with fresh melted blue cheese and loaded with our Prune Onion Jam, this burger is hard to beat during the summer months.  Serve it with our Watermelon Salad this weekend and you will be amazed with all the things!

 

The biggest star of the burger is our Prune Onion Jam, and it is so easy to make.  Simple ingredients that you probably have on hand, it keeps in the fridge for weeks so you can enjoy it at leisure.

 

Let’s start with the jam….

Add some extra virgin olive oil to a saucepan and heat to medium.

 

Next, add in the sweet onions and fresh thyme and sauté for a few minutes.

 

Add the chopped prunes and the rest of the ingredients to the pot until the onions are caramelized and the liquid is reduced down.

 

Ah, the beauty!

 

Store in an airtight container and use throughout the next few weeks.  

I dream about topping a toasted bagel and cream cheese with it in the morning…

But let’s not get distracted…

Back to the burger…

 

I find the combination of a rich, tangy blue cheese with the sweet, tart prune onion jam to be the best combination, topped with a simple tomato slice and a portion or two of leafy romaine.  

Slather it on.

Don’t be shy!

 

So amazing!
