Community Recipe from


  • 8 ounce(s) bacon cooked until crisp, coarsely chopped
  • 1 pound(s) (85% lean) ground beef chuck
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 potato or brioche buns
  • 1/4 cup(s) mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup(s) ketchup
  • 5 ounce(s) sliced sharp yellow cheddar or american cheese
  • 1 large tomato thinly sliced
  • 2 cup(s) baby romaine leaves


  1. Preheat a grill to medium. Place the bacon in a large bowl, crumble the beef on top and season with salt and plenty of pepper; toss well. Shape the meat mixture into four 3 1/2 to 4 inch patties.

  2. Using a serrated knife, trim the bun tops and bottoms so they will sit flat on the grill. Spread the mayo and ketchup on the insides of both halves; divide the cheese among the bottoms; cover with the tops.

  3. Place the patties and cheese-filled buns on the grill; with the buns over a cooler area; cover and cook until the patties are medium, both sides of the buns are toasted and the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Transfer the buns to plates and open carefully. Place a patty, a tomato slice and some lettuce on each bun bottom; replace the bun tops.
