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 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.

Other great tips for delicious burgers: handle the meat flip the meat just once & handle the uncooked patties/meat minimally.
