servings: 6

preparation time: 1 hour

 

Ingredients:

2.20 lb ground beef (chuck  roast, rump or sirloin)

8 oz ground bacon

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 onion, grated

2 garlic cloves, mashed

1 envelope onion soup mix (optional)

1 tbs vegetable oil

6 slices cheddar cheese

2 tomatoes, sliced

lettuce

mayonnaise, mustard and/or ketchup to taste (optional)

6 burger buns

 

Directions:

1 – In a bowl, combine ground beef, bacon, salt, pepper, garlic, onion and onion soup mix.

2 – Using your hands, shape 6 burgers, each weighing about 7 to 8 oz. Let it rest for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350°F.

3 – In a large skillet, heat the oil and seal the meat (about 2 minutes on each side). Transfer the burgers to a baking sheet, lined with foil paper.

4 – Bake for 10 minutes, add the cheese, and return to oven for another 10 minutes (or until the meat is cooked as you like).

5 – Remove from oven and let it rest for 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the bread.

6 – In a half, spread mayonnaise, mustard and/or ketchup (as you prefer). In the other half, add lettuce and tomatoes.

7 – Add the burger, and enjoy!

 

Tips and Options:

  • Ask the butcher to grind the bacon for you. If you can not, cut the bacon into very small pieces or use the food processor.
  • Serve with fries or chips.
  • To increase flavor, season the tomato and lettuce with a pinch of salt, olive oil, and vinegar.
  • If you are using the onion soup mix, remember that it already contains salt.
  • To cook the burger, you can use the oven, the pan or the grill. I chose to use the pan quickly to get a golden crust, but transferred to the oven to avoid the mess… 🙂
