Recipe courtesy Bobby Flay Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes Yield: 6-8 servings Was looking for a new burger recipe, and was lucky enough to find this one right away. The sauce is fantastic. The combination of the chile heat and the slight sweetness of the honey was awesome. It was a nice change from the usual burger spreads we make. I usually don't serve burgers to company, but with the right quality beef, this could definitely be considered a restaurant-quality meal.
