C loves a good bacon cheeseburger, even if his arteries do not.  Ha, ha!  I had never attempted to make one because frying and I, well, we just don’t get along.  So in my effort to be a good wife and fix things he enjoys, I got over my fear of frying and cooked this recipe from KevinAndAmanda.com.

The burgers turned out great even after I burned the first batch of bacon I cooked and then managed to smoke up the house while I was cooking the second batch. Oops!


1 lb. bacon

1 lb. ground beef

1 pkg. dry ranch dressing mix

2 tbsp. A1 steak sauce

1 egg

Montreal steak seasoning

Sliced cheese of your choice

Hamburgers buns


Cut the bacon in half and fry in a large skillet over medium-low heat about 10 minutes on each side.  Don’t do what I did and turn up the heat trying to make it cook faster.  Please, just don’t. 


While the bacon is cooking, combine the ground beef with the ranch dressing mix, A1 sauce, and egg.  Mix this together with your hands and form into 6 patties.  Season both sides of the patties with Montreal steak seasoning.

When the bacon is done, leave just enough bacon grease in the skillet to coat the bottom.  Turn the heat up to medium high.  Put the hamburger patties in the skillet and cook for 3 minutes on each side.  While the burgers are cooking, spread a little butter on the buns and toast in a warm oven for about 5 minutes.


Place the cooked bacon strips and a slice of cheese on each burger and place a lid on the skillet.  Turn off the heat and leave covered just until the cheese melts.  Build your burger and enjoy!

I am always on the hunt for new supper ideas that we will like.  I am a little more adventurous than C is when it comes to trying new things, but he does pretty well if I don’t go crazy.  One thing that holds me back severely is that I am very very allergic to chicken and turkey.  Those are two meats that you will never find on my blog because I can’t even touch them without getting a reaction, let alone eat any.  It definitely limits my options.

That means I am thrilled when I find a new ground beef recipe that looks promising.  This recipe did more than look promising; it was delicious!  I served these with chopped fresh veggies and oven baked fries on the side and it also made enough for lunches for the next two days.  This is definitely a keeper!

Another great thing about it is that it is totally customizable to your burger preferences.  Give this a try!

1 lb. hamburger

1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 tsp. minced onion

2-3 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled

3 can crescent rolls


Cook the ground beef over medium heat until there is no pink left.  Add the minced onion, bacon, and cheese; stir to combine and set aside.


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a cookie sheet.  Unroll the crescent rolls into individual triangles.  Place about 1 tablespoon of the meat mixture onto the big end of the roll.  Roll the dough toward the small end and tuck the ends under to make a package.


Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.  Serve warm with ketchup or you favorite dipping sauce.
