This is a quick and dirty recipe that I’ve made up for one of our country’s favorites–cheeseburgers. Unfortunately, I don’t have a grill or even a griddle, so I had to cook mine in a frying pan. If you have either I would definitely recommend using one for this recipe, although it is certainly not impossible to do without one. Here’s what you’ll need to make them:
- 1.5 lbs ground beef
- 4 slices of bacon
- 1 tablespoon worchestershire sauce
- cheddar cheese
- hamburger buns of your choice (I used onion buns)
- 1/2 of an onion (optional)
The first thing that you’re going to do for this recipe is to chop your onion. If you like sauteed onion on your burgers, fry the onions with 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium high heat until they are caramelized or crispy (whatever your personal preference is). To make the actual patties, you are first going to mince the bacon into very small pieces. Next, combine the bacon, beef, and worchestershire sauce in a large mixing bowl and mix until everything is even. Form your meat into four patties. Next, heat up a large frying pan over medium high heat. Add the patties (you don’t need oil or grease in the pan because the beef and bacon will cause enough). Cook your patties for about 4 minutes on each side, or until the patty starts to firm up. Once the patties are firm (which means they’re fully cooked) put a slice of cheese on each one, and wait until the cheese is melted. When the cheese is melted, take the patties out of the pan and put them on the buns. Add whatever toppings you like, and you’re done!
