Chipotle Bacon-Wrapped Juicy Lucy Burgers
Chipotle Bacon-Wrapped Juicy Lucy Burgers... Yep you read that right. We took the classic Juicy Lucy burger and took it to the next level by wrapping it in our famous Chipotle rubbed bacon.
This is the kind of epic burger we can't resist making. I mean, bacon makes everything better right? Wrapping a cheese-stuffed burger in bacon just makes sense. After crisping up that bacon on a hot grill pan, it adds just the right amount of savory crispiness that you crave when you bite into a burger.
If you want your summer to be epic, this is the quickest way to make that happy. We'll be grilling up these bad boys, all day erry day. Because that's what summer is all about. Happy eating!
INSTRUCTIONS: In a large bowl, mix together beef, flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder with your hands. Divide the mixture in half, and then in half once more. Form 4 round patties, making sure to pat them out thin.
On a large sheet pan, lay 5 bacon strips out in the shape of a star.
Place one of the small patties in the middle and add half of the cheddar cheese to the center.
Top the patty with another patty, firmly pinching the edges to seal it well.
Fold up the strips of bacon over the burger, trimming the ends of the slices as necessary so they lay in a flat layer. Repeat this process to form the second burger. Place the burgers seam-side down on a grill pan over high heat. Cook for 5 minutes per side, or until desired doneness is reached, making sure to flip the burger on it’s sides to crisp up the bacon on all sides.
Serve immediately and garnish as desired. Shop This Post Pig of the Month Chipotle Rubbed Bacon Recipe & photos by Meghan Bassett
