spicy_bacon_burger

This Sunday and hopefully many more I will be participation in #SundaySupper. #SundaySupper is a twitter movement started by Isabel at Family Foodie to bring back Sunday Supper Around the Family Table in every home. This week’s theme is easy and simple recipes. What’s easier than burgers on the grill? And they only require minimal cleanup afterwards.

You won’t find this recipe on the shopping list, but here is the list you will need for these burgers for 4 people:

  • 1.5 lbs ground round*
  • Bacon
  • 3 jalapenos
  • Sliced pepper jack cheese
  • Sweet and Spicy BBQ sauce
  • Burger buns
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Lettuce, Tomato, Onion – optional toppings

I like to make 6oz burgers. If you only want to make 4oz burgers only buy 1lb of meat instead. With any extra ground beef, patty up the meat, wrap in foil, and freeze in a ziploc bag. When you want to make burgers again let them de-thaw in the fridge the day of and then come to room temperature on the counter for about 1 hour before cooking.

Spicy Bacon Burger

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs ground round*
  • Bacon
  • 3 jalapenos
  • 4 Slices pepper jack cheese
  • Sweet and Spicy BBQ sauce
  • 4 Burger buns
  • 2 tsp Salt & Pepper
  • 2 tsp Garlic powder
  • Lettuce, Tomato, Onion – optional toppings

Directions

1. In a large bowl combine ground beef, salt & pepper, garlic powder, and 1 jalapeno chopped and seeded. Form 4 equally sized patties.

2. Preheat the grill for 5-10 minutes on high heat.

3. Lower grill to medium high heat. Place burgers on grill and cook 5-6 minutes each side for medium well, less if you prefer rarer. Never press your burgers and only flip 1 time!

4. After flipping, on the top rack of your grill (if you have one) place buns and bacon. The bacon will cook quickly watch it carefully and remove when it is to your liking. Be sure not to burn the buns either.

5. In the last minute of cooking top each burger with a slice of pepper jack cheese.

6. Place burgers on bun and top with sliced (seeded) jalapenos, bacon, bbq sauce, lettuce, tomato, and onion.
