BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger
Serves: 4
  • 1 lb thick cut bacon
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 T BBQ sauce (plus more for topping)
  • Cheddar cheese slices
  • Hamburger buns, split
  1. Cook bacon until crisp. Crumble two strips of bacon and set aside the rest on a paper-towel lined plate.
  2. In a small bowl combine ground beef, crumbled bacon, 2 tablespoons of barbeque sauce, plus salt & pepper to taste.
  3. Cook burgers on a grill or grill plates until cooked through.
  4. While burgers cook, toast hamburger buns (I like to spread mine with a little butter and put them in a small skillet for a minute or two, until golden).
  5. Brush burgers with BBQ sauce.
  6. Top each burger with a slice of Cheddar cheese and continue to warm until melted (tip: cover the burgers with a pot top or another skillet to help trap the heat to melt the cheese faster).
  7. Place a patty on each bun bottom. Top with cooked bacon slices and drizzle with more BBQ sauce.
