Just came home from dinner out where I had the ultimate -- they called it the 50/50 burger...half ground beef and half ground BACON. Dear Sweet Jesus this was AWESOME.
I ditched the bun and the white cheddar and ate it with the lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle knife-and-fork style.
Thought I'd share this with everyone as it was absolute heaven. The possibilities are endless!
Was the bacon cooked first or raw? I must try making this at home.
I think they mixed together raw ground beef and raw ground bacon because it was very well blended. I also imagine it'd be easier to grind the bacon from slab, slightly frozen.
Then I mixed (by hand) equal parts ground beef and bacon. Then I made patties. Then I cooked them. Then the heavens parted, and angels sang my praises.
They do cook a little longer, and they throw off a LOT more grease (it's a lot like cooking bacon), but they are seriously awesome.
