Bacon Cheeseburger Sandwiches

It's time for more bacon!  After all, it's #baconmonth, and what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't support my favorite protein by offering up great bacon filled recipes?  Answer: a BAD one, and we can't have that!

 

These bacon cheeseburger sandwiches from @ItsYummi can be topped with any of your favorite burger condiments, creating a new twist on the traditional burger! #baconmonth 2013

 

I was rushing to get out the door and head over to work when I made these, so I didn't spend more than 20 minutes assembling and baking them.  In other words, this version would be the PERFECT lunch or dinner for those of you who have busy lives and want to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible.  If you've got a few more minutes to spare, I suggest that you dice up and saute onions, mushrooms, green peppers, jalapenos, or anything else that you think will make this sandwich the perfect burger sandwich for your taste buds.

I brushed the insides of the French bread with melted garlic butter before baking these, so I really didn't need to add much more to my sandwich to make it perfect for me.  Just a bit of lettuce and tomato and I was great to go.  Brian added horseradish and onions to his, which, in my opinion, makes him condimently brilliant.

If your perfect bacon cheeseburger includes toppings like pickles, jalapenos, mustard, ketchup, or even BBQ sauce, by all means, pile them on and make yourself happy! Now that the technicalities are out of the way, let me get to the recipe so that you can dig your teeth into one of these bad boys!

Recipe Category: Main Dish
Cuisine: sandwiches
Serves: 4
WHAT'S NEEDED
  • 1 loaf "bake & eat" French bread (ready-to-eat bread can also be used)
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or your favorite variety)
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon southwestern seasoning (I used Pampered Chef #9714)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed black pepper
HOW TO MAKE IT
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Add uncooked beef to a large skillet. Sprinkle with seasoning mix, salt, and pepper, and cook over medium high heat, breaking up meat with a fork to crumble and stirring occasionally to prevent burning. (If desired, add diced vegetables after 3 minutes). Cook until no pink remains, about 8 minutes. Drain grease from pan. Remove pan from heat, stir in cooked bacon and set aside.
  3. Add butter and garlic to a small, microwaveable dish. Cook on high power until butter is melted, about 25 seconds.
  4. Cut French loaf into 4 equal sized pieces, and then slice each piece horizontally. Lay pieces cut side up on a sheet pan or baking stone. Brush each piece with melted garlic butter, add some of the beef & bacon mixture, and top with shredded cheese.
  5. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Top with your favorite condiments and place two slices of bread together, forming the perfect sandwich!

    We made these for supper tonight and they were awesome! Really easy to make and tasted fantastic. My husband is a very picky eater -- doesn't like pasta, rice, potatoes unless they are very creamy smooth mashed or french fries...the list goes on and on. He LOVES hamburgers though. This was a fun way to do a twist on a burger. He absolutely loved them. I put ketchup and mustard on half and Cholula hot sauce on the other half. I think I liked the Cholula better...the ketchup and mustard overpowered the delicous bacon and garlic flavor. The small amount of Cholula helped the other flavors shine. Oh, and we doubled the bacon...we love bacon lol. (Our dog is even named Bacon haha) :) This is a keeper, let me tell ya! Thanks for sharing!
