Last Friday, I told you about the yummy food truck that came to my dad's 60th birthday party and served us sliders. I enjoyed two different versions that night...first, I had their Strawberry Jam & Goat Cheese Burger (see my version here) and then I had one of their Peanut Butter and Bacon Burgers.
I could pretty much slather peanut butter on cardboard and eat it...loooove it! Needless to say, on top of a burger with bacon only made my love of PB grow even more. This weekend, try my version of their PB & Bacon Burger...I promise you, you only thought peanut butter was meant to be with jelly. It is actually meant to be with beef and bacon.
This recipe is for four half pound burgers.
2 pounds of ground beef
2 tablespoons steak seasoning
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
about a tablespoons or so of creamy peanut butter per burger
8 pieces of bacon, cooked until crispy and then crumbled
1 red onion, chopped
a handful of basil leaves, chopped
Preheat your outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high.
In a mixing bowl, combine your ground beef, steak seasoning and Worcestershire sauce. Divide mixture into four patties. Lightly press down the centers of each burger so that when they cook up, they are flat and not bulging in the center.
Grill each patty until it's done to your liking. We typically grill our burgers 6 minutes per side to get a nice medium burger. Remove from grill and assemble.
Take your bun and add the patty, a nice dollop of peanut butter, some crumbled bacon, sliced onion and a sprinkle of basil. Serve and enjoy.
