Guava Brie Burger

There’s this restaurant in the hipster neighborhood of Wynwood (Miami) called Kush that serves an amazingly delicious burger. The burger is so…well, let me just copy the menu description for you:

Burger served with guava jelly, melted Gruyere, stuffed with potato stix, crispy bacon, LoKal sauce and then pressed on a flat top grill.

Are you drooling yet? You should be!

I was inspired by this burger to make my own – albeit less decadent – burger.

(This is really less of a recipe & more of a burger topping suggestion!)

We had some Bubba burgers left over from a family barbecue, brie cheese left over from another recipe, & guava paste because I’m Cuban & it’s a staple in my house. Bingo.

If this combination sounds weird to you, just know that guava & cheese is a CLASSIC in the Hispanic community.

I cut up the brie & guava paste to melt over the pre-cooked patty.

To complete this beautiful burger I turned to another classic Hispanic pairing – mayoketchu. As the name suggests, it’s equal parts mayonnaise & ketchup. It’s also surprisingly tasty to someone who hates ketchup (me).

Put it all together on a bun & you have an wonderfully Hispanic Hamburger.

I’m not the greatest at taking pictures of sandwiches/burger, but that still looks pretty great to me!
