For his Spanish-inflected burger, Jorge Guzman at Solera made a patty by whipping duck fat into Thousand Hills grass-fed beef and adding caramelized onion right to the patty. After grilling, the patty is topped with ramp pesto, Romesco sauce (a Spanish sauce of ground almonds and piquillo peppers), Caña de Cabra (a Spanish goat's milk cheese), and Mizuna greens, and served on a potato bun from Levain Bakery.

The burger is available at dinner through Friday for $15. Check out the step-by-step making of in the slideshow above, and also take a look at special Eater burgers from The Left-Handed Cook here and Sea Change here.
