Salivating Saturday (A Day Late)

I know this is a day late but I was under the weather yesterday and couldn't post. I didn't want anyone to miss out on this recipe so I decided to post it today. 

WARNING! If you are not a meat eater, stop reading this now. If you do indulge in the some meat eating action read on.

Today's recipe is brought to you by OMP.

Walter’s Good Burgers
 These are named after my favorite character from the Big Lebowski – Walter Sobchak and the famous line from Donny where he says – “Those are good burgers Walter.”

There really isn’t much measuring involved with this recipe. I pretty much put in the amounts I feel look right. If you want to add more cheese? Then more cheese! Bacon? Pile it on.

Okay, here goes.

1 pound of lean Hamburger (or enough for 3 or 4 good size patties).
Cheddar Cheese
Bacon (usually three or four pieces)
Worcestershire sauce
Garlic powder
Salt and Pepper

Drop your hamburger into a large mixing bowl. With this recipe I like to use the good stuff (93% fat free). You don’t want a lot of flare-ups on the grill with these babies!
Cook your bacon until it is nice and crispy. Pad oil off of and crumple up into a large mixing bowl w/raw burger
Shred your cheese and add that to the mix
I usually do three or four shakes from the Worcestershire bottle into the mix
Few shakes of the Garlic powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
Now – get your fingers in there and mix it all up real well. You want the cheese and bacon incorporated with the burger.

Pat out your burgers and get ready to grill! Heat it up and throw them on.

The trick to making sure these are done? Watch the cheese in the mix. If it is getting liquidy and bubbling up, then it is time to flip. The same can be said about after the flip. Look for that cheesy goodness bubbling up out of the burger (mixed in with those delicious juices). Throw it on a bun, condimentize it and enjoy!
