How to make it

  • BURGERS
  • Pre-heat grill to Med heat
  • Lightly oil grill rack, or spray with Pam
  • Turn non-stick skillet on med-high heat
  • Cut bacon into 1/2 - 1 inch pieces (This is easier if the bacon is frozen - sit on the counter about 10 minutes before you are ready to cut, and put in the pan frozen, it will fall into the cut pieces as it gets hot) and add to skillet; cook until crispy and drain on papter towel lined playte
  • Shred cheese while bacon cooks
  • Add ground beef, seasonings, bacon and cheese to large mixing bowl
  • Mix together with hands until well blended
  • *Shape into 6 large patties - the meat will draw up as it cooks, have them a little flatter than you want the finished burgers
  • Turn heat down to low, and add burgers
  • Cook about 8-10 minutes each side
  • * BURGER NOTES *
  • Don't try to even out all the crevices in the side of the burger, they help them to cook more evenly
  • Turn only once
  • Do NOT mash with the flipper - that makes for drier burgers
  • The cheese will cause some flaming and smoking, keep a squirt bottle with water handy, and spary once ot twice if needed
  • WHILE BURGERS COOK
  • Slice onions into thin rings and sauted with mushrooms in bacon drippings - or EVOO, etc.
  • (Slice pepper into think rings if using, and saute with onion and mushrooms)
  • Drain on paper towel lined plate, if needed
  • Butter the insides of the rolls and grill
  • PUT IT TOGETHER
  • Grill burgers to 160* internal temp
  • Top with onion mixture and your fave garnishes
  • *Flavored mayos would be good!*

    Back in this evening to report on these burgers. WOW! So delish, great texture and the cheeses really do complete the burgers.

    NOTE: The liquid smoke is a must--even with grilling outside. It adds a depth. The 1/4 tsp is just about the right amount. Key is mixing the burgers WELL with your hands to distribute the flavoring throughout. Liquid Smoke is a very strong element--don't over do!

    NOTE: The burgers will be "loose"--so the instructions about turning and oiling the grill grate first are spot on.

    NOTE: I didn't feel like frying up the bacon first hand, so I used the instant microwave bacon. Heated until crispy, then crumbled into the mix.

    NOTE: This recipe as written makes a LOT of mix. I actually froze four of the patties for another night and cooked four.

    All in all---top rate. This one gets my "5"
    Follow Sparow's instructions to the "t" and you can't go wrong!!
