Recipe of the Week: Classic Bacon Cheeseburger

Tomorrow is National Hamburger Day!  I can't think of anything better than grilling a juicy hamburger and not only in the summer months, but all year round.

Americans eat nearly 50 billion burgers a year, which translates to three burgers a week for every single person in the U.S.!

We don't eat that many burgers in our house, but when we do....we prefer them grilled and with a think slice of bacon and sharp cheddar cheese!  For me, the key is the beef and how you prepare and season.


Classic Bacon Cheeseburger


1 pound ground beef (80/20)
1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon Lawry's Season Salt
slice of America cheese (or sharp cheddar of your choice)
4 pieces bacon, cooked
butter toasted pub buns
fresh lettuce
sliced tomato


Mix the beef, Worcestershire, salt, pepper and season salt.  Divide the beef into 4 patties, depending on how big you want them. 

Preheat your grill to medium high heat and cook the burgers 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare.

Remove from the heat and add sliced cheese and top with bacon.

Top the toasted buns with fresh lettuce and tomato and mayonnaise (or another condiment or your choice).
