Chipotle Bagel Burger Recipe

Bored of your regular burgers? Try the Chipotle Bagel Burger!
Our Culinary Services Director at New Perspective Franklin, Michael Davis, shared a favorite burger recipe of his—the Chipotle Bagel Burger. This recipe is flavorful, simplistic, and different!
What you’ll need (the below creates one burger):

  • Ground meat of your choice
  • A sesame seed bagel
  • Chipotle seasoning
  • Cream cheese
  • Mushrooms
  • A red onion
  • 2 strips of bacon

Sauté the mushrooms in a tablespoon of butter. Once these are cooked through, remove them from the pan and grill 1/8 of a red onion.
Next, cook the meat and bacon as you typically would—either pan fried or grilled. While these are cooking, whip up some Chipotle cream cheese for the sauce:
Chipotle Seasoning:

  • 1/4 Tablespoon crushed Chipotle pepper
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Chipotle chili powder (or any other chili powder)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon paprika (smoked if available)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt

Mix these together with four tablespoons of the cream cheese of your choice.
Next, spread the Chipotle cream cheese on your bagel and then grill it! This helps the bagel retain moisture so that it doesn’t become too tough or chewy during the grilling process.
Now, put your ingredients together and enjoy!
