It’s time to break out that grill and put the burgers on! What is better than the traditional American cheese burger? A burger with a bit more flavor. We’ve included a few of our favorite recipes that include Bacon, Pimento Cheese and BBQ sauce all staples in a southern pantry. We’ve also included some tips to kick up your grilling skills.

Bacon Burger

Bacon lovers who want it in every bite this one is for you. By cutting the bacon into small pieces and mixing it with the ground beef evenly you’ll get the flavor throughout the whole burger. We recommend ¼ of your meat being bacon.

Ingredientsbacon burger
¼ lb. Broadbent hickory Bacon, minced
¾ lb. Ground Beef
4 Buns
4 Slices Cheddar
½ tsp Pepper
4 slices of lettuce
4 slices of Tomato

Directions
Cut your raw bacon into very small pieces mix into the ground beef along with pepper. Divide into 4 equal parts (1/4 lb) and create round patties. Heat a large skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; cook 5 minutes on each side or until desired amount of pink. Top each patty with 1 cheese slice; cook 1 minute or until cheese melts. Stack burger on bun with lettuce and tomato. Serve immediately.

Grill Master Tip: Season the grill with oil, salt and pepper before placing the patty.

Pimento Cheese & Bacon Burger

Pimento cheese is a staple in the south. Adding it to your burger over a standard slice of cheese will make a big flavor impact. Using the smoked pepper bacon will compliment that traditional salt and pepper seasoning of the beef.

Ingredients
1 lb. Ground ChuckOriginal Photo by Magnolia Days
8 Slices Broadbent Smoked Pepper Bacon, cooked
½ tsp Black Pepper
¼ C. mixed chopped fresh herbs (basil, mint, oregano, etc.)
4 Buns
4 Slices lettuce
4 Slices Tomato
Pimiento Cheese

Directions
Preheat grill to about 350 degrees. Combine chuck, pepper and herbs gently. Shape the mixture into 4 patties about 5 inches across. Let stand about 10 minutes. Grill patties about 4 to 5 minutes on each side (do not squish), simply flip once. Once burgers are removed lightly toast the buns on the grill after turning down the flame to low. Top each burger with lettuce, tomato, pimento cheese, and 2 slices of bacon.

Grill Master Tip: Let the meat come to room temperature before cooking to allow for more even cooking, increasing the likelihood of getting that perfectly pink center.

BBQ Cheddar Burger

BBQ lovers can enjoy the flavor with less mess by including the sauce in the meat. Our Pappy’s sauce offers a unique flavor without a lot of heat, perfect for the whole family. We highly recommend a thick slice of cheddar cheese over tradition American to really taste it on top of the BBQ flavored meat.

Ingredients
1 lb. Ground Chuck
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
½ C. BBQ Sauce (Pappy’s Sauce for Sissies Mild Kentucky BBQ Sauce)
½ tsp Black Pepper
4 Buns
4 Slices lettuce
4 Slices Tomato
4 thick slices of cheddar cheese

Directions
Preheat grill to about 350 degrees. Combine chuck, salt, pepper and BBQ sauce. Shape the mixture into 4 patties about 5 inches across. Grill patties about 4 minutes on each side, top with a thick slice of cheddar and allow to melt. Top each burger with lettuce, tomato, and bun.

Grill Master Tip: Use a truly delicious condiments such as Broadbent’s Sweet and Tangy Mustard or Spicy Mayo.
