Burgers and a sick child
365 Favorite Brand Name Hamburger Copyright 1997
1 pound lean ground beef
4 crisply cooked bacon slices, crumbled
1 ½ teaspoons chopped fresh thyme or ½ teaspoon dried thyme I used dried
½ teaspoon salt
dash freshly ground pepper
4 slices Swiss cheese
Preheat grill. Combine ground beef, bacon, and seasonings in medium bowl; mix lightly. Shape into 4 patties. Grill 4 minutes; turn. Top with cheese. Continue grilling 2 minutes or to desired doneness. I used the broiler for these.
Makes 4 servings.
I've found burger recipes to be hit or miss. It's really hard to improve upon your basic burger. The Aisle 6 Beef Burgers were not that great. Burrito Burgers, on the other hand, were pretty good. These Bacon Burgers can go stand next to the Burrito Burgers - they were pretty good. I'm not sure about the thyme since it was overpowering the bacon a bit but otherwise I thought this was a nice twist on a burger, without straying too far from the basics.
I'm home with a very sick child today so that's all I have time to say today. Have a great weekend.
