Memorial Day weekend was wonderful! A much deserved loooong weekend and I enjoyed every minute of it. I slept in everyday and ate grilled food everyday, ahhh its a wonderful life 🙂
I even made my own Jucy Lucies! Remember our trip to MN??
This recipe will make 6 very large burgers!
I started by mixing 2 lbs of lean ground beef (I used lean because I was adding fat aka bacon), 4 strips of cooked bacon crumbled, green onion to taste, jalepenos to taste (I ♥ spicy), salt/pepper, and a splash or 2 of worcestershire sauce. I used this handy Pampered Chef tool to mix it all.
I made 12 equal meat balls (2 per burger).
smooshed it out, I started with my measuring cup but ended up using my fav kitchen tool, my hands!
once that is flatten out, I added a slice of cheeeeese. I bought a special cheese, but I think I would have preferred a regular ole’ Kraft American single…but this still tasted great.
add a patty to the top and seal the edges
Then throw this on the grill! I usually have my burgers med well, but grilled these until well done because of the cheese in the middle. Make sure you seal the edges so no cheesy goodness escapes.
I served my burgers with my mama’s baked beans.
1 can of baked beans
cooked BACON, crumbled
bake at 400ish for about 15-20 minutes (I baked in my toaster oven so I wouldn’t have to turn on my oven just for my beans).
check out the melty cheese in the middle…it was really good…be careful cheese in the middle it hot and things will get messy
