Creole Mustard Tomato Jam:
•⅓ c. Alamos Red Blend
•⅓ c. crushed grape tomatoes •2½ tbsp. blackberry or raspberry jam (with seeds)
•1 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper
•1 tsp. sea salt
•1 tsp. garlic powder
•½ tsp. onion powder

Cook down all ingredients except mustard in a small saucepan, stirring constantly until thick and relatively uniform in consistency. Mash all bits of tomato into sauce. Remove from heat and place in a nonreactive bowl to cool. When just above room temperature, stir in mustard.
Preheat oven to 375° F. In a large bowl, mix all burger ingredients except rolls and olive oil using your hands until evenly incorporated. Make into 5 large (entrée size) or 10 small (slider size) patties and set aside.
Over high heat, heat an oven safe pan until drops of water skitter across its surface. Pour in enough olive oil to coat bottom of pan by one quarter of an inch. Heat oil for 30 seconds. Place patties in pan, working in batches if necessary. Cook patties until browned on bottom and then flip and brown the other side. Remove burgers to baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Repeat until all burgers are browned. Place burgers in preheated oven for roughly 5 to 7 minutes for medium doneness. Place on grilled buns and top with watercress, sliced plum tomato and Creole Mustard Tomato Jam. Serve hot.
