  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • ¼ cup BBQ sauce*
  • ⅓ cup breadcrumbs

  • extra bbq sauce for on the bottom of the bun and on top
  1. In a skillet, cook the bacon. Allow the bacon to cool on a paper towel. Once the bacon has cooled, chop 4 pieces of bacon. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the chopped bacon, ground beef, BBQ sauce, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Mix together. Cover with plastic wrap and allow it to marinate in the refrigerator for one hour, longer is even better.
  3. Divide the ground beef into 4 patties and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side. You might need more or less time depending on how well and rare you like your burgers. Use a meat thermometer to determine how much longer or shorter you will need to cook them.
  4. Before they are completely done, place one piece of cheese on top and allow it to melt.
  5. Drizzle BBQ sauce on the bottom of your hamburger bun, place the burger on top, drizzle more BBQ sauce on top of the burger. and top with one piece of bacon.
