The Cheeseburger in Paradise is a popular dish at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville, but for the month of May 2013, the restaurant will also be offering a specialty burger each week.
That’s because May is National Hamburger Month.
The specialty burgers were created by Margaritaville Chefs across the country, then voted on by the people. Here are the winning concoctions:
Week #1 (April 29-May 5) will feature the Boursin Mushroom Burger. Created by Margaritaville Mohegan Sun chef Mark Collins, this burger is piled high with a grilled portabella mushroom, Boursin cheese, pan-fried tomatoes, jalapenos and an avocado mayonnaise.
Week #2 (May 6-12) will feature the Volcano Nacho Burger. Created by Myrtle Beach Margaritaville Chef Craig Ledger, it has Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese, Volcano Chili, house-made Queso, fried tortilla strips and for an extra kick some sliced jalapenos.
Week #3 (May 13-19) will feature the Ultimate Burger Melt. Created by Chef Franz Zmuda of Margaritaville Las Vegas, this burger is served with caramelized onions, fire-roasted tomatoes, covered with Parmesan cheese, melted Monterey, Jack & Cheddar cheese, Heinz 57, and served on baked and buttered Texas Toast.
Week #4 (May 20-26) will feature the Arizona Jerk Burger. This burger got its start in the kitchen of Margaritaville Glendale by Chef Anthony Garcia, and is topped with sautéed chopped onions, jerk BBQ sauce, Pepper Jack cheese, peppered bacon, pickle planks and served with a chutney mayonnaise.
Week #5 (May 27-June 2) will feature the Crunch Burger. Created by Margaritaville Atlantic City (Opening Memorial Day Weekend 2013) Chef Jason LaMotte, this bun-less burger rests on a bed of shredded lettuce, covered with chipotle mayonnaise and topped with American and Cheddar cheese, grilled tomatoes, sweet-and-spicy bacon, and lastly fried potato crisps.
