BBQ Burgers ~ Mouth Watering!

recipe from plainchicken.com

I know I proclaim my great likes and dislikes when I post recipes and it may seem that I have a lot. I do actually, to be a foodie I think it only goes with the territory, right? 

If you were to ask me what my favorite main meal would be, it would be a toss up between cheeseburgers or shrimp. Funny how they are from opposite ends of the spectrum but I rarely pass up either no matter the time or place. 

I like my cheeseburgers more on the traditional side. No extra ingredients so they end up tasting like meatloaf or meatballs. I really don't remember what made me try this recipe a few weeks ago but I am so glad I did.

A few extras added to some ground beef, shaped into patties and I am in cheeseburger heaven! I cannot believe how tasty these were. Don't take my word for it, give them a try!

1 lb. ground chuck
1 egg
2 Tbls. BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
bacon strips, cooked
cheddar cheese
extra BBQ sauce

In a mixing bowl, combine the hamburger, eggs and 2 Tbls. BBQ sauce. Use your hands or wooden spoon to mix thoroughly. Divide meat into 3 equal portions and gently form them into patties. Grill or pan fry to desired doneness. 

Top burgers with cheese, bacon and extra BBQ sauce. 

See that massive glob of dripping cheese up there? Back away from it, it's mine!

really, you are surprised that adding bacon made something better? hee hee. Once again, we are on the same page food wise. I'm a pretty strict traditionalist with burgers (usually, beef, cheese, mayo, lettuce - crispy, not leafy & ketchup). But if I ever stray, its beef, cheese and bbq - its a nice change. However, instead of bbq sauce in the burger, I will throw in some homemade bbq rub, but then put sauce on the burger. If you've never read Steven Raichelen's how to grill, pick it up, the man is a genius and does not at all look like a BBQ god, more like the Joy of Painting guy. cheers

I love cheeseburgers... and coincidentally - shrimp too. But not together because that'd just be gross.
I hate meatloaf so any burger that tastes like it, isn't being made in my house. THIS burger, looks amazing!

I'm also seconding Richard's voice on Bacon. Everything with bacon is better. Everything. Okay maybe not eeeeverything, but hey shrimp is! haha
I love you and I'm totally stealing, I mean borrowing this recipe.

BBB, I have not read that! By your description, I need to! I should have known better about the bacon, I am learning Bacon Master!

Nicole, that would be gross! No meatloaf, I don't understand this...probably like you don't understand my aversion to coffee? Steal and borrow please, you know I do it to you ALL the time!

Thanks for hosting your link ups, Theresa. I look forward to them every week.
