To celebrate National Burger Month, we’ll be sharing burger recipes from some of our favorite Texas friends! This recipe comes from Monica’s blog, Lick the Bowl Good.

When we go out for burgers, we like simple, fuss-free burgers with a lot of flavor. Of course I like fancy burgers with a lot of toppings, but I have a problem paying $20 for a burger. When we crave burgers and I don’t want to make them at home we go to Top Notch in Austin, Texas for a flame-grilled burger. Their onion rings are the best! That place really is a hole-in-the-wall and it’s decor is stuck in the 1970’s but that’s part of the appeal, it’s consistently good and we’ve been going there for years.

But this post is about my homemade burger and Tillamook Sliced Cheddar. We’ve been buying Tillamook Cheddar for years now and it’s the only cheese in our fridge so I was excited to participate in this Grillabration.


Ground beef (85/15)
4 garlic cloves
Tillamook Medium Cheddar slices
Sliced bacon
Fried egg
Crostini bun

For the burger itself, I seasoned the ground beef (85/15) with salt, pepper, and 4 cloves of chopped fresh garlic. I formed them into ⅓ pound patties then cooked them in bacon grease. I topped them with a slice of Tillamook Medium Cheddar, 2 bacon slices, green leaf lettuce, tomato, and a fried egg on a toasted crostini bun. The only thing that could have made this better was a little pesto mayo. This burger was messy and huge but it was so good!
