These bacon cheeseburgers will melt in your mouth! Topped with bacon and cooked in bacon fat, these burgers redefine what it means to be a “bacon cheeseburger.” Serve with fries if you please!Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ lbs. ground chuck
  • 8 thick bacon slices
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 slices American cheese
  • 5 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • Optional toppings: iceberg lettuce, sliced, tomato, sliced pickles, ketchup, onion slices

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 200 F. Place rack in the middle of the oven and place a baking sheet on top.
  2. Separate meat into 4 equal portions for patties. Create ½ inch thick patties.
  3. Cook bacon in a large frying pan over medium heat. Flip until the patty is browned and crispy. Remove cooked bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Pour about half of the bacon fat from the pan and save it for later.
  4. Sprinkle patties with a generous amount of salt and pepper for seasoning.
  5. Reheat the pan to medium heat and place 2 of the patties in the pan. Cook in the bacon fat until the bottom browns, for about 4 minutes. Flip patties over. Layer two slices of cheese of each patty and continue cooking until the center is slightly pink and the cheese has melted.
  6. Wipe pan and pour the other half of the leftover bacon fat in the pan. Cook the other two patties following the same method.
  7. Once all the burgers have finished cooking, assemble burgers on patties with your desired toppings and condiments. Don’t forget the bacon!
