grilled burgers with cheddar & smoky aioli

The cover recipe of Bon Apetit looked too good to pass up. Burgers layered with grilled peppers and onions, arugula and topped with a smoky aioli? Sign me up!
My version of the aioli contained a mixture of mayo, olive oil, garlic, paprika, coriander, cumin and smoked sea salt.  (I then proceeded to make a side dish of my own so that I could add some sriracha! I’m actually starting to get a little worried about my consumption of sriracha, it is out of control!!!)
Grilled Veggies for the burgers

The final plate


This ended up being SO delicious. I ate sans bun because, well it just didn’t need it! This might be the prettiest burger I’ve ever seen  and I don’t even know if I needed the meat – the veggies and aioli stole the show!
