Bacon Cheeseburger and Baked Fries

Posted on

It has been feeling like Summer lately in Central Arkansas, and with that I felt that it was time to have a good hamburger. This wasn’t just any hamburger though, it was seasoned to perfection, two pieces of gooey cheese, with two pieces of perfectly cooked bacon on top, all sitting between tow pieces of fresh kaiser rolls. Served along side of baked regular and sweet potato fries.

I love the process of charcoal grilling, the open flames, the smell of the coals, the flavor that they add to anything that is on the grill and sitting outside enjoying the beautiful weather as each piece of food takes its time to reach optimal flavor.  I grew up with my Dad always using a charcoal grill of some sort and the smell and flavors take me back to childhood.

I grew up with my Dad always using a charcoal grill of some sort and the smell and flavors take me back to childhood. Since we moved here a couple years ago we have only had an electric grill, while I have no complaints of anything Hubby has made out there for me, I had missed the charcoal taste. A few months ago he decided to convert an old electric grill we had to a charcoal grill. With these burgers, we finally got to try it out, and it worked great.

  1. Mix hamburger meat and seasoning. Divide in half and shape into patties.
  2. Cook bacon in skillet. Don't let it get to crispy.
  3. Once your grill is ready to go, place patties over the coals. Cook until they reach a 140°F for a medium burger. Be sure to flip two or three times to cook evenly.
  4. Slice rolls in half. Toast rolls on grill when patties are almost done. On the bottom slice lay a piece of cheese on it and set on the plate.
  5. Lay a piece of cheese over each patty. Add on the bacon, slice each piece in half so that the burger has two pieces. Top with the other roll.

Hubby added grilled jalapenos to his burger. To grill remove the stem and seeds and grill for 20 or so minutes until tender.
