BBQ Bacon Burger
A classic grill season go-to with a flavorful twist.
2 pounds of ground beef (80/20), makes 4 burgers
8 slices of cheddar cheese
8 slices of cooked bacon, cut in half
1/2 cup of BBQ sauce
2 cups of onion straws, found at your local grocery store
4 tablespoons of butter
Start by cleaning and oiling your grill. Then heat it to 500 degrees F.
If you didn’t purchase your burger patties already formed, form the meat into four equal-sized, half-pound patties. Then, season each patty with salt and pepper.
Place your burgers on the grill and cook to your preferred level of doneness.
Top each burger with a slice of cheddar cheese and allow to melt on the grill for one minute.
Spread butter on both sides of the burger buns. Then, place them on the grill for one minute.
Place two strips of bacon on each burger, then top the bacon with another slice of cheddar cheese. Allow this to melt.
Remove burgers and buns from the grill and place each patty on a bun.
Spread one full tablespoon of BBQ sauce on the inside of each bun.
Place perfectly grilled burgers on bottom buns with the cheese and bacon side up. Then, top each with half a cup of onion straws. Place a bun on top of burger and dig in!
