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
Montreal steak seasoning
Sliced cheese of your choice
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!
