- Burger patty (see “The DIRTY Burger” entry for suggestions)
- Bacon bits (precooked)
- Bacon strips (precooked)
- Burger toppings (bacon, cheese, lettuce, bacon, tomato, onion, bacon, onion rings, etc)
- Make 2 burger patties, then flatten them so they are wider and thinner.
- Sprinkle bacon bits into the center of one patty then place the other on top and pinch their edges together to form 1 larger patty. (Note: if the patties can touch anywhere but the edge you did not sprinkle on enough bacon bits)
- cook burger over Medium/Low heat for 25 minutes (or until cooked to your taste)
- When the burger is ready to come off cover the top of the burger evenly with strips of bacon and place a slice of your favorite cheese on top. Then do this again over the first slice.
The reason for not mixing the bacon into the meat is to ensure none of the bits burn while making sure they are all cooked through. The author of this article highly recommends “The DIRTY Burger” as a choice for “burger patty”, but any burger can be used.
I recommend topping the burger with a slice of cheddar and a slice of pepper jack, lettuce, tomato, sauteed onions, ketchup, mayo, and of coarse more bacon.
Remember, when in doubt, add more bacon.
