“Being in Texas, grilling is a way of life and BBQ is a staple. But, finding foods that keep all 5 of our children interested can be a chore. The common thread? Bacon. By adding BBQ to the patty prior to cooking, melting a slice of Tillamook Medium Cheddar Cheese on top, and then garnishing with bacon, we found the perfect burger combo for our children.” - Staci Salazar of 7 on a Shoestring
Cook bacon and dice 4 slices into small pieces and set aside. Use the other 4 slices for garnishing the top of the burger. Combine mayonnaise and BBQ sauce in a small bowl and add bacon bits and minced onions to mayonnaise/BBQ mixture. Then add ground beef and mix well.
Shape ground beef mixture into hamburger patties and grill burgers until juices run clear…or desired doneness. Top with Tillamook cheddar cheese and cover until cheese is melted. Garnish with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and bacon as you like. Spread preferred condiment over kaiser roll and serve with your favorite side.
