Happy Father's Day
Now that soccer and graduation seasons are over and I've gotten a chance to catch my breath --- I can get back to blogging.
In honor of Father's Day, I am dedicating this blog post to all of the dad's out there. I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate Father's Day than with some Bacon Cheeseburgers for lunch. BACON-CHEESE-BURGERS people! What could be better?
8 slices bacon
1 onion, sliced thin
1 pound 85% lean ground beef
4 cheddar cheese slices
3 hamburger buns
Process bacon in a food processor until smooth.
Cook bacon in skillet until lightly browned.
Drain bacon - reserving fat. Let cool on paper towels.
Saute onion and 1/4 t salt in 2 T reserved fat in skillet.
Spread beef in an even layer in a baking sheet. Sprinkle with bacon, 1 t. pepper and 1/8 t. salt.
Toss with 2 forks to combine.
Shape into 4 equal patties. Press thumb in center of each burger to make a slight impression.
Grill patties until temperature reaches 130 for medium burgers.
