Step 1

Heat oven to 200°F and line a baking tray with baking paper/foil.

Place the cheese inside the jalapeño halves then wrap each with a strip of bacon. Put the poppers on the backing sheet and place in the oven. Allow to bake for 15 minutes until the bacon is crisp, the cheese has melted and the jalapeños are cooked. Remove and set aside.

Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Form into 4 burger patties then cook on a grill/hot frying pan until cooked to your liking.

Serve the burger patties on the toasted rolls with all the add-ons and top with the jalapeño poppers.

Serve immediately.
