Muss + Turner Inspired Burgers with Cilantro-Candied Jalapeno Mayo, Roasted Poblanos, 
Pepper Jack Cheese, & Red Onion on Toasted “Everything” Brioche Buns
Sorry for not posting the last couple days, I had school and then my friends and I went down to Jacksonville, Florida for the Jimmy Buffett concert. And lemme tell y'all, it was debauchery at its' finest. Here's some pictures from our drunken adventure...
Kisses for Mollie
My car was so packed, we had to sit with stuff on our laps...
My Mountain Man bought this hat off some random people for $50... totally worth it.
Wrong in so many ways (that's a beach ball as my pregnant belly, don't worry) 
Heading into the concert!!

Kisses for my Cleetus
"Cheeseburger's in Paradise" that we made, um yum. 
As you can see, it was pretty crazy! We're all still recovering, but it was so worth it. Everyone should go to at least one Jimmy concert in their life, there's nothin' like it. Anywayyyyyy, back to today's recipe. For our tailgate, I made some homemade brioche buns, but to make them extra special... I topped them with a classic "everything" bagel seasoning mix. There were poppy seeds, sesame seeds, dried garlic, onion flakes, salt, and pepper all gorgeously sprinkled on top of the perfectly browned buns. They were to die for. So much so, that when we had a few left over, I knew we had to make some burgers this weekend. Ultimately, I decided that I wanted to make a burger inspired by one of my favorite lunch spots in Atlanta, Muss + Turner. They have a bunch of great options, but their burger is always raved about. It's layered with roasted poblano peppers, aged cheddar, red onion, and a cilantro mayo. I mean, those are some great components y'all. It was mixed up a bit today because we used pepper jack cheese and a cilantro-candied jalapeno mayo. This burger is sweet, smoky, salty, creamy, & spicy. That sounds perfectly balanced in my book. Well, I'm happy to report it was fabulous and definitely ranks in the top five of any burger that I have made. All of the handmade components really take it over the top, especially that bun. I'm not including the bun in this recipe, but don't you worry, I'll post that recipe tomorrow afternoon. So, please check back!! Enjoy :)
Look at all those perfect layers, y'all :)

For the Cilantro-Candied Jalapeno Mayo:
½C Mayo
¼C Fresh Cilantro, Minced
2T Candied Jalapenos, Minced
1T Lime Juice
1 Small Clove of Garlic, Minced into a Paste (with a little salt)
Salt & Pepper, To Taste (a pinch of sugar, if needed)

For the Cumin Burger Seasoning:
2t Sea Salt
1t Fresh Cracked Pepper
½t Cumin

For the Muss + Turner Burger:
Homemade “Everything” Brioche Buns, Sliced & Toasted (or fried in butter)
Ground Chuck Beef Patties
Prepared Cumin Burger Seasoning
Prepared Cilantro-Candied Jalapeno Mayo
Pepper Jack Cheese Slices
Roasted Poblano Peppers (one per burger)
Thinly Sliced Red Onion

1. For the Cilantro-Candied Jalapeno Mayo: Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until incorporated. Season the mayo with salt, pepper, and sugar to taste. Refrigerate until ready to use.
2. For the Cumin Burger Seasoning: Mix together the spices in a small bowl until thoroughly mixed. Sprinkle the seasoning mix on both sides of the burger patties.
3. Assembling the Burgers: Season the burger patties with the prepared cumin seasoning. Sear the burgers over high heat until you have reached your preferred doneness (we like ours medium to medium-rare). Toast your brioche bun in the oven or fry them in oil until golden brown & crispy. Spread a big spoonful of the Cilantro-Candied Jalapeno Mayo on both sides of the buns. Layer the burger by placing down some of roasted poblano, followed by the burger, more roasted poblano, and a slice of pepper jack cheese. Toast the cheese topped burger in the oven until it has just melted. Remove it from the oven and finish it off with some thinly sliced onion and the top piece of the bun.
4. Enjoy immediately while it’s still warm!
