***Happy New Year's!! I hope that you had a fantastic 2008 and that your 2009 is even better. Did you have a fun New Year's Eve? We sure did. Our friends Jessica and Dustin came over for a night of great food, good drinks, and fun times! We chowed down on a wonderful burger recipe that they shared with us. Why put the cheese and bacon on the outside of your burger when you can put it on the inside?? It's a simple recipe that yields a juicy, mouth-wateringly delicious burger. Try it tonight!***
2 lbs. ground beef
Swiss cheese, sliced
1 pkg. pre-cooked bacon
Your choice of extra goodies - ketchup, mustard, lettuce, pickles, mayo, buns, etc.
Shape ground beef into extra thin, round patties. Cut swiss cheese squares into quarters. Also, cut bacon into 1-inch pieces. Place cheese and bacon pieces on the center of a hamburger patty. Place a second hamburger patty on top, cinching the edges all the way around to seal the burger...it will be a big burger! :) Repeat with the rest of the ground beef.
Pop those babies onto the grill, flipping occasionally until well done. Serve immediately.
