10 pieces of bacon, cooked crisp and ground
2 lb ground beef
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
2/3 cup mayo
1-2 cloves roasted garlic (you can read my method here) or 1 clove minced garlic
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
4 pieces of bacon, cooked crisp and ground
1 Tbl BBQ sauce
1/4 tsp white pepper
6 Hamburger buns, grilled
6 slices of American cheese
12 strips of bacon, cooked crisp
In a small food processor combine ground bacon, mayo, garlic, lemon juice, bbq sauce and white pepper. Plus till evenly blended. You could do this by hand, but make sure the garlic is finely diced. Remove sauce from food processor and set a side.
In a large bowl, gently mix beef, bacon and spices till loosely mixed together. Form into 6 burger patties. Heat grill to medium high and grill 3-4 minutes per side or until thermometer reads 160 degrees F at the thickest part of the burger. In the last minute of cooking, place one slice of cheese on each burger. Allow cheese to melt and remove burgers from the grill. Quickly toast the split buns on the grill (about 30 seconds to 1 minute) and remove.
To assemble the burgers, spread aoli on both sides of the bun. Next place burger on the bun and top with bacon. Crack a beer and devour.
