Bacon Beef Burgers

Have we talked about the bacon burgers yet?

Are you ready for your head to explode? Like literally. This might change your life.

50% beef. 50% bacon. Ground up into a sexy pile of meat and then turned into the most life altering burgers you will ever stuff in your face.

These are exactly what I made for 4th of July on Wednesday. FOR 50 PEOPLE. Yes. 50 people. By myself. Minus the fact that I almost blew off my eyebrows on the grill, it was the perfect day. Beach house in Malibu - check. Lots of fun friends - check. 10 pounds of guacamole - check. Bacon Burgers - double check.

These burgers need to happen all the time.

They are equal parts smoky and awesome. Pair it with some awesome burger toppings and a toasted bun and you've got the tastiest burger in the history of burgers.

Now here's the deal, I get my 50/50 bacon burger mix from the master minds over at Lindy and Grundy in Los Angeles, but my guess is that if you're friends with a butcher in your town, they would do the same thing for you. And if you don't have a friend in the butcher business, well, make a butcher these chocolate chip cookies and then ask them. I can almost pinkie promise you that they are gonna love you forever. I mean, would I lie to you guys? Heck no. Love ya forever 🙂

So this is what I promise. Grab from 50/50 bacon burger mix this weekend. Throw on the grill. Pour yourself an ice cold beverage, preferably this Strawberry Basil Lemonade. Make yourself a few to-do lists, because it's the right thing to do. And have yourself a perfect weekend.

And while you're enjoying yourself, have a cocktail or two for me... because I'll be knee deep in some last minute wedding planning. Why? Because I'm getting married in 50 days!!!!!!!!!

  • Heat your grill or indoor grill to medium heat.

  1. I'm sure the bacon adds great flavor to the burger, but I can't imagine the texture. Doesn't matter, I'm thinking they're amazingly delicious!

  2. I love sticking a slab of thick cut bacon on my burgers so I don't know why I haven't thought of this. Brilliant!
