Ultimate Burger

There is BACON AND CHEESE built right into this burger…..right there in the patty.  You don’t even have to work to get this goodness, IT’S RIGHT THERE!!  Hope I didn’t oversell that one.  But seriously, this burger is juicy and flavourful.  Because of the bacon fat.  And that’s the delicious kind of fat.

Here they are fresh off the grill, smothered in delicious homemade BBQ sauce:

Ultimate Burger Recipe

For the burgers:
3 lbs lean ground beef
2 cups aged cheddar cheese
¼ cup onion
¼ cup hoisin sauce
2 tbsp finely chopped garlic
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 cups chopped bacon
2 eggs
½ cup bread crumbs
3 tsp salt
3 tsp ground pepper

Optional glaze:
½ cup barbecue sauce
¼ cup hoisin sauce
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp ground cinnamon

1.    In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, cheddar, herbs, onions, hoisin, garlic, and Worcestershire.
2.    Sauté the bacon over medium heat until cooked through.  Add the warm bacon, including the fat, to the beef mixture.  Stir in the eggs, bread crumbs, salt and pepper.
3.    Once it’s well combined, form the mixture into eight evenly sized burgers and chill.
4.    Combine the barbecue sauce with the hoisin, honey and cinnamon.
5.    Cook the burgers on a very hot grill, brushing with the glaze each time they are turned.  Warm the buns on the side or top rack.  Once the burgers are cooked through, remove from the grill and brush once more with the glaze.
