Bacon Jalapeno Tequila Jam Burger with Fontina

This was beyond what I even set out to do. One thing led to another, and before I knew it I was making a bacon jalapeno tequila jam. I also made a homemade pretzel bun for this burger and melted lovely fontina cheese on top. If you can't find maple flavored butter, simply add a tbsp of maple syrup to regular unsalted butter.

Hi I'm Shea, and I’m a polished Southern belle. I adore food, and cooking is my therapy. There’s just about nothing I wouldn’t put a jalapeno on.

Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Make pretzel buns: add Bacon (5 oz) to the Pretzel Dough (1.3 lb). Cover with a plastic wrap or a towel and allow to rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in bulk. Punch the dough down and turn it onto a lightly floured clean surface.
step 2
Line 1 large sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside. Cut the dough into 4 pieces. Take a piece of dough and start forming a round, smooth ball by pulling the sides to the center and pinching to seal.
step 3
Place, pinched side down, on a counter and lightly cupping your hand around the dough ball, rotate your hand in small circles lightly rolling the ball around the palm of your hand.
step 4
Place the ball on the prepared baking sheet pinched seam side down, with at least 1 inch between each roll. Cover with a towel and allow to rest in a warm place for 30 minutes until they rise and double.
step 5
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) and place oven rack in the middle position.
step 6
In a large saucepan, bring Water (8 cups) to a low boil. Remove from heat and slowly add the Baking Soda (1/4 cup), place back on heat and lower to a simmer.
step 7
Place 2 of the rolls at a time into the poaching liquid, seam side down. Poach for 30 seconds and then carefully turn the roll over and poach for another 30 seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon to the same prepared sheet pan, seam side down. Repeat with the remaining rolls.
step 8
Using a pastry brush, brush each roll with the Egg (1), making sure to coat all sides completely and then prinkle each roll with a little Pretzel Salt (to taste).
step 9
Using a sharp straight edged knife, cut a slash or an “X” shape in the top of each roll.
step 10
Bake the rolls in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes.
