CHICKEN-FRIED STEAK BURGER WITH SPICY SAUSAGE GRAVY ON A BISCUIT

Ingredients Weight Measure
TABASCO® brand Green Jalapeño Pepper Sauce 2 oz.
Buttermilk 2 cups
Burger patties, 4 oz. 4 ea.
Unsalted butter 1/2 lb.
Onions 1 ea.
Fennel sausage 1/2 lb.
All-purpose flour, divided 2-1/2 cups
Thyme, leaves picked 1/2 Tbsp.
Espresso 3 shots
Whole milk 3 cups
TABASCO® brand Original Red Sauce 2 oz.
Biscuits 4 ea.
Fresh chives, minced 1/2 bunch

Method

  1. Combine TABASCO® Green Sauce with buttermilk; place burger patties into mixture to soak.
  2. Prepare sausage gravy: In a medium pot over medium heat, add butter and onions; cook until translucent. Add sausage in quarter-sized crumbles. Add 2 cups flour and thyme; stir until it has absorbed the butter. Stir in espresso, then slowly pour in milk; reduce to a low simmer.
  3. Dip each soaking burger patty into remaining flour, back into the buttermilk, then once again into the flour; fry burgers at 350ºF until golden brown.
  4. Turn off heat on gravy and add TABASCO® Original Red Sauce.
  5. Place each crispy burger atop a biscuit bottom so it looks like a muffin top. Ladle sausage gravy over top, lean the top of the biscuit on the side, and garnish with minced chives.
