This recipe was inspired by Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives feature of Dad’s Kitchen restaurant. It’s definitely going to be featured in this week’s menu!
I thought these burgers looked soooo good. I wanted to replicate them in an easy fashion. There are endless possibilities to add in here, but I wanted simple today. I skipped the sauce that they show in the clip, but if I have more time next time, I may give it a try. Let me know if you do!
Recipe: Bacon Cheeseburgers Like You’ve Never Had ‘Em
2 pounds ground beef
1 pound bacon
1-2 tsp garlic salt
pepper to taste
chili powder to sprinkle
Chevre, cheddar, swiss, or any other type of cheese you would like (or none at all–which is how I made it for Superman and I)
In a bowl, combine the ground beef, garlic salt and pepper. Chop the bacon into small pieces. Line a large cutting board or counter top with parchment paper. Using a large round cookie cutter or form (I had a 3-inch cookie cutter), spread some bacon in the cookie cutter, top with some cheese (if desired), top with a fist-full of ground beef, and then take off the form and voila! Beautiful!
Sprinkle with a bit of chili powder.
Using a flat metals (these metals are molded through green sand casting process) such as spatula, place each burger on a large griddle or grill heated to medium heat, bacon-side-down. Cook for 6-7 minutes. Carefully flip over and cook another 4-5 minutes. Serve over a bed of mixed greens for a great salad! Leave plain, or top with some homemade garlic mayo and mustard, or whatever else you like!
