Georgia Burger

I was born in Georgia and Georgia will always be a part of me so I thought this recipe would be a perfect submission for me. This recipe utilizes 3 of Georgia's main crops, peanuts, peaches, and vidalia onions.

Ingredients 

Peach Mayo
2/3 cup mayo
3Tbs finely chopped peaches
squeeze of a lemon
Patties
1 3/4 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
1/4 cup finely chopped peaches
1/4 cup finely chopped vidalia onion
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
vegetable oil, for brushing on the grill rack
12 slices of Texas toast
6 romaine lettuce leaves
6 (1/4inch thick)tomato slices
6 thin slices of vidalia onion

Instructions 

Preheat grill to medium-high. To make the peach mayo, combine the mayo, peaches, and lemon juice in a small bowl and mix well. Cover and refrigerate. To make the patties, combine the beef, peanuts, peaches, onion, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Handling the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it, mix well. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form into patties to fit bread. Whe the grill is ready, brush with oil. Place patties on rack, cover, and cook, turning once, until done to liking (5 to 7 minutes on each side for medium). During the last few minutes of cooking, place the bread on outer edges of rack until lightly toasted. To assemble the burgers, place a leaf of lettuce, a patty, tomato slice, onion slice, and dollop of the mayo on each of 6 of the slices of toast. Add the remaining slices of toast on top and serve.
