A Real Bacon Cheeseburger

Thursday, March 8, 2012 Review by judywrites

Here you go – stop messing with the bacon on top of the burger… put it right in the burger.

Double 50/50 Burger
Serves 3

Ingredients:
patties:
½ lb lean ground sirloin (or ground beef of your choice)
½ lb ground bacon
salt and pepper to taste
vegetable oil for grilling

3 toasted hamburger buns or Kaiser rolls
6 slices cheddar cheese
6 slices Jack cheese
optional:
pickles
relish
avocado
tomatoes
lettuce
onions
bacon
mayonnaise
mustard
ketchup
thousand island

Directions:

1. Place beef and bacon into a large mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper. Mix together until fully combined.
2. Form six equal patties and place in the refrigerator between parchment to chill.
3. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat and brush the surface with vegetable oil.
4. Place patties onto the grill pan (three at a time) and grill for 5 to 7 minute on each side.
5. About two minutes before the patties are done, place a piece of cheddar and jack cheese over each patty and allow cheese to melt before removing and placing onto a clean surface. Repeat with the remaining patties and cheese.
6. To assemble: Stack two patties onto one another and place on a bun. Add any remaining toppings and condiments of your choice and serve.
