RECIPE: Easy Bacon & Beef Burgers for the Home Grill

Credit: I @SuperDaddyYeo on Instagram
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 pieces white sandwich bread (binder), crust removed, cut into small pieces (smaller than half an inch)
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • 1/3 cup low fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper or cajun spice for added heat (be mindful of salt in your choice of cajun spice, adjust kosher salt lower, if necessary)
  • 2 tablespoon worcestershire sauce (or try your favorite steak sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 pounds 85% lean ground beef
  • 1 pound ground bacon (fat = flavor)
  • Buns (we recommend Chicago’s Turano Buns)

    ~Mix the Milk and Bread together until it’s a thick paste. 
    ~Add in Worcestershire, Ketchup, Salt, Pepper & Garlic to the paste and mix (don’t overmix).
    ~Break up the Beef and Bacon into pieces before spreading it around in the remaining paste.  Mix well, but don’t overdo it. 
    ~Quickly form about 10 patties.  Do this fast so it stays cold. 
    ~Refrigerate until you’re ready to grill. Important Note: Make sure meat is cold before grilling so the fat doesn’t melt off too fast.  As Chef Ed would famously say to all of our culinary students, “Fat = Flavor” 

(This is similar, but not the same as Frato’s Famous Bacon & Beef Burger Patties)
