MMMMM….It’s Friday and it’s time to chow down on some good grillin’! Alex (our 13 year old) suggested we embark on a new burger recipe. When I found the BOG recipe from the Eggtoberfest 2oo9 collection of recipes, we knew we had a winner. Bacon, Onion and Guinness….what a combination.
Here’s the recipe for those who like things simple:
- 1 large onion, chopped 1 lb bacon 2 bottles Guinness beer 4 lb ground beef
- Fry the onion and bacon until about halfway done, then add the beer. Cook until beer is reduced.
- Cool, then combine in food processor until chunky. Combine with ground beef. Let the meat mixture rest for a few hours in the fridge.
- Form into small patties and cook at 400 degrees until the burgers “sweat” (about 4 minutes), then flip them and cook about 4 more minutes. Serve on small dinner rolls.
I made six burgers with only half the recipe – don’t be fooled by the above – clearly this was written by someone either in Texas or with an incredible appetite. Half it and you’ll do just fine for a family of 4 – we now have enough beef mince for at least 6 more burgers. Burp!
