Menu Plan Monday June 23rd

I thought it must be a mistake when I typed out the date for this post.

How can June be almost over?  It just begun!

Of course this past week completely disappeared for me.

I was able to by pass most major colds this winter, but come summer time I go and get bronchitis (or pneumonia).  After coughing non-stop for four days, I went to the doctor.  I decided to skip the x-ray to know what I had for sure, but he said it was one or the other.  I think I might be getting better, but I still have this horrendous cough, and I am so exhausted.

I mean, my abdominal muscles are sore, like I have been doing a week of crunches, my coughing was so bad.

So I am not really sure what happened last week, it is just kind of a blur for me. (and I am a little delirious right now, so I am not sure how this post will turn out)

Cheesy Bacon Burgers & Menu Plan Monday Aug 19

BaconCheeseBurger01 copy

While searching for new recipes I cam across this one for BBQ Bacon Sliders from one of my favorite recipe websites Our Best Bites.  I have a lot of their recipes in my box.

I thought it sounded great but I needed to do some altering.

I don’t really like blue cheese, my hamburgers require more than just BBQ sauce, and I didn’t really want to make sliders.

I decided to share with you the recipe that I made.

 

Here is what you’ll need:

BaconCheeseBurger02

Cheesy Garlic Spread
1/4 c. mayonnaise
1/4 c. sour cream
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1-3 clove garlic, pressed or finely minced
1/4 c. Asiago or Parmesan cheese or other strong cheese

Whisk together all the ingredients and store in fridge until ready to use.

Burgers
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1/2 c. BBQ sauce (any kind you want)
1 egg
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. Steak sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
4-6 hamburger buns, sliced and toasted
8 slices of bacon, cooked crispy
Crispy lettuce
French’s French Fried Onions (you can find a recipe for making your own here)

Heat BBQ to medium-high heat, or use a grill pan on the stove top.

Beat the egg with the 2 Tbs. BBQ sauce, 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp. steak sauce.  Mix in the hamburger meat and salt & pepper.  (don’t worry if you think the burgers a little juicy, this will help to ensure they don’t dry out while cooking)

Divide hamburger mixture in to 4 or 6 patties, after flattening use a small cup to make a round depression in the center.  Hamburgers tend to shrink and plump during cooking; while waiting for center to cook the edges can get too done.  Making the center of the burgers thinner should allow for a more even cooking.

Grill burgers for about 10 minutes, brushing with remaining BBQ sauce, flipping once, until done.  Internal temperature should be 160-165ºF.

To assemble burgers: spread the cheese sauce on each half of the bun then layer with lettuce, bacon, burger, more BBQ sauce (if desired) and fried onions.

These were TO DIE FOR!

And they WILL be made again.
