  • The best bacon cheeseburger recipe - the simple secrets to a juicy & flavorful burger on the grill

    Oh yes! Summer is unofficially here! I’m taking advantage of beautiful evenings by cooking dinner outside on the grill while the girls play. I look at the grill as our outdoor kitchen. You can cook {& bake} almost everything on it! It’s amazing what a little sun & fresh air does for my attitude. There’s a really great meat market just a couple miles down the street that offers bacon burgers. When I was pregnant {& not watching calories so closely}, I would make them for dinner. We really enjoyed them, but they were missing one of my favorite ingredients in a hamburger patty – onion! My mom often used onion in ours for a little added flavor & added juiciness. At the time, I didn’t even like onions. The patties were also fatty, so I decided it was time to make my own…of course it takes just 5 minutes, much quicker than running to the market!

    It’s simple. A half of an onion, chopped, 2-3 slices center cut bacon, chopped, & fresh cracked pepper, mixed with 1 lb of 93/7 lean ground beef. Worcestershire sauce optional for extra juiciness.

    the secret to a great cheeseburger

    The best burgers also include the best cheese. The fresher, the better. Extra points for a soft, creamy cheese! I love blue cheese burgers, but fresh, triple cream blue cheese bacon burgers? AMAZING. American for the girls. They stick to the standard on their burgers.
