    50/50 Burger...Drool, Drool

    Shop Now
    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!

    I think I just food-gasm'd in my mouth a little.

    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.

    You should. I made it by taking some bacon ends and pieces (why use the good stuff?), chucking it in my food processor, and blitzing it until it was more or less ground. Make sure the bacon is as cold as possible, even a little frozen (i.e., 10-15 minutes in the freezer) to make the processing easier.

    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.

    Village Tavern in North Wales/Montgomeryville. It was a special, not on their regular menu.

    I'm not usually a huge bacon fan, but I HAVE to try this. I think even one piece of bacon ground in to a burger would be awesome.
