Ingredients
Directions
1
Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium high
2
To make the jerk marinade, combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside
3
To make the jerk mayonnaise, combine 1/4 cup of the jerk marinade with the mayonnaise in a small bowl and mix well. Cover and refrigerate. Reserve the remaining jerk marinade to make the patties
4
To make the patties, gently but thoroughly combine the ground chuck with the remaining jerk marinade. Divide into 6 equal portions and form into patties to fit the brioche buns
5
Brush one side of each patty with vegetable oil and place oiled side down on the grill rack. Cook for 4 min. per side until a dark brown crust is formed
6
During the last minute of cooking top each patty with a slice of cheese and place buns, cut side down, on the outer edges of the grill rack to lightly toast
7
To assemble the burgers, spread jerk mayonnaise on the cut side of each top and bottom bun. Place a cheese-topped patty on each of the bottom buns, top with some sliced scallions. Add the bun tops and serve
