Romesco Burgers

Romesco Burgers

With a burger recipe like this, you’ll be tempted to serve this cookout classic on a white tablecloth. Our romesco burger recipe will make you feel like you’re on a holiday in sunny Catalonia. Best of all, it can be made with just a few pantry basics, so you can whip up this easy recipe anytime. This romesco recipe gets a little spicy zip from our chipotle almonds, which are a perfect complement to smoky pimentón. If you’d like to kick up the smokiness, feel free to fire-roast red bell peppers just for this romesco — a burger this good is worth a little extra effort! We think this burger recipe is best made with good-quality grass-fed chuck, but you’ll still have a rich and juicy burger with a leaner meat, if it’s topped with a romesco sauce made with our buttery almonds.
