Bacon Wrapped Burgers

A unique burger that you won’t find at your local burger joint. With rich depth of flavor, yet still deceptively simple and easy to put together. There is nothing like it.
Bacon Wrapped Burger


For the burgers:

·         1 lb. extra lean ground beef
·         1/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
·         Pinch each salt and pepper
·         4 slices center cut bacon

For the balsamic glaze:

·         1/2 cup good quality balsamic vinegar


1.       Begin with the balsamic glaze by pouring balsamic vinegar into a small sauce pan over high heat. Bring to a boil and reduce to medium-medium high to simmer. Stir occasionally until sauce has reached desired thickness.  20-30 minutes should be all you need. Once desired consistency is reached, remove from heat immediately. 

2.       In a large bowl, gently combine ground beef, gorgonzola cheese, and salt and pepper until ingredients are just incorporated. Form into 4 equal-sized patties. Press your thumb down into the center of each patty to create a small indent. Wrap each burger with a slice of bacon.  

3.       Grill over medium heat beginning with the edge of the bacon side facing down until burgers have reached desired doneness, about 5 minutes each side. Transfer to buns and add lettuce and tomato. Drizzle with balsamic glaze.

Happy Cooking
