Foodie Friday

I stole this one from Rachael Ray, but it is DA BOMB. Is that not cool anymore? Oh...shit.

Inside-Out Bacon Cheeseburgers

1 1/3 lb. ground beef
2 tbl. steak seasoning (McCormick's Montreal is my fave)
5 pieces of bacon, cooked & chopped
1/3 c shredded cheese
2 tbl. Worcestershire sauce
4 hamburger buns
*and any other ingredients you normally like on your burgers (lettuce, tomato, onion, etc.)

Mix the beef with the steak seasoning and Worcestershire and let rest. Cook the bacon until crisp and chop then mix it with the cheese (add more cheese depending on how you like your bacon:cheese ratio). Heat your grill or grill pan to medium high (or high - I mean I'm sure you have made burgers before, whatever works for you). Pat out the patties into 4 discs and make sort of a well in the center of each (put the patty in your hand and form it around a cupped hand). Pile about 1-2 tbl of the bacon/cheese mixture in the middle and then form the rest of the patty around it. Make sure none of the cheese/bacon is coming out of the sides (it should be completely surrounded by the beef). Grill those bad boys up to your desired done-ness (it usually takes mine 15-20 mins, I like them well done).

Rachael also suggests you make a roasted green onion mayo. It is delicious, take about 5 green onions and roast them on the grill for a couple of mins. while the burgers are cooking. Bring them in and combine with about 1/2-3/4 c. mayo and a teaspoon of cumin. Process in the food processor or blender. Use this as a spread for your burgers or any sandwich during the week.
