Chicken-Fried Steak Burger with Spicy Sausage Gravy on a Biscuit
|TABASCO® brand Green Jalapeño Pepper Sauce||---||2 oz.|
|TABASCO® brand Original Red Sauce||---||2 oz.|
|Burger patties, 4 oz. each||---||4 ea.|
|Unsalted butter||1/2 lb.||---|
|Fennel sausage||1/2 lb.||---|
|All-purpose flour, divided||---||2-1/2 cups|
|Fresh thyme, leaves picked||---||1/2 Tbsp.|
|Whole milk||---||3 cups|
|Fresh chives, minced||---||1/2 bunch|
Combine TABASCO® Green Sauce in with buttermilk; place burger patties into mixture.
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 flour has absorbed the butter.
Stir espresso, then slowly pour in whole milk; reduce to a low simmer. Add TABASCO® Original Red Sauce to season before serving.
Dip each soaking burger patty into remaining 1/2 cup flour, back into the buttermilk, then once again into flour; fry burgers at 350ºF until golden brown.
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.
