Bacon Bourbon Burgers

Bacon Bourbon Burgers

Sarah Stone 79

"In 2011 I attended the 'Chefs of the Coast' cook-off where 4 chefs battled it out cooking their own personal recipe using Four Roses Bourbon®. I thought that I could absolutely make a burger worthy of the Four Roses name and this is it. It's a savory burger that is seasoned to perfection and topped with bacon and other assorted toppings."

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Mix ground beef, bourbon, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, steak seasoning, and garlic salt in a bowl; divide and shape into 2 patties.
  3. Cook on the preheated grill for about 5 minutes; turn, top each burger with bacon and Cheddar cheese, and continue cooking until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 5 minutes more for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Serve on split buns topped with tomato and lettuce.

DELICIOUS! Made exactly as written and would not change a thing. I formed these earlier in the day and put them in the fridge, just to let all the flavors mingle. I also added some onion along w...

Pure awesome. Everyone loved them. Couldn't get enough.

These were ok, but a little on the sweet side for me. I did use deer instead of beef, due to a food allergy in my household. While the had a good flavor, they just didn't have the wow factor we...

These were pretty good, but I was expecting more. I'll make again, but it won't be a regular.

Excellent! I used ground pork instead. It makes sweeter burgers, so I suggest a pepperjack cheese, or some fresh jalapeno for a balancing kick.

Loved it so much. Never had a happier man
