Barbecue Candy Bacon Burgers
2 lbs 80/20 ground chuck
1 cup Pork & Mindy’s Sweet Sauce
fresh ground pepper
8 strips of bacon
1 cup brown sugar
8 slices of aged cheddar cheese
French’s Fried Onions
4 romaine lettuce leaves
1/2 cup Pork & Mindy’s Sweet Heat Buttermilk Ranch
potato hamburger buns
Place bacon in ziplock bag with brown sugar. Shake vigorously to coat bacon fully. Place on wire rack and cook in 350-degree oven and cook until crisp. Shape 6 oz. patties (about 3/4 inch thick) with the ground chuck into uniform patties (don’t overwork the meat). Make a depression in the center of each burger with your thumb so the burger won’t bulge in the middle. Preheat the grill or grill pan to medium-high heat and brush with oil. Season burgers with salt and pepper and place on grill. Cook until golden brown and slightly charred, turning only once (7 minutes for medium-rare). Avoid pressing with a spatula. Top burger with sweet sauce, 2 slices of bacon and 2 slices of cheese the last minute of cooking. Remove from grill and place on bun with lettuce leaf on the bottom and top with crispy onions. Put 2 Tbs Sweet Heat Buttermilk dressing on top bun and place on burger.
