I was watching the Rachel Ray show last week and she showed this burger recipe that is a little different and looked SO good. Sometimes it's nice to add a little variety to my staple favorites and also be able to use the ingredients in multiple meals.

Maple-Dijon Bacon Burgers

  • 12 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp grainy dijon mustard
  • course black pepper
  • 1 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • salt
  • canola oil
  • 1/2 lb extra sharp white cheddar, sliced (or whatever cheese you prefer)
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 4 sandwich sized english muffins, toasted and lightly buttered

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees
  • Arrange the bacon on a wire rack set over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 
  • Whisk up syrup, dijon and black pepper
  • Drizzle half the syrup over top of bacon and bake 15 minutes. Flip bacon and baste them with the remainder syrup. Bake 5-8 minutes more until crisp. Remove from oven and reserve
  • Season beef with worcestershire, salt and pepper. Form 4 patties
  • Heat cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, drizzle with a little canola oil and cook patties 8-10 minutes turning once, melting cheese on burgers in last 2 minutes of cook time
  • Remove patties to plate, wipe pan and add eggs. Cook to desired doneness, over-easy or up.
  • Place cheeseburgers on english muffins and top with bacon and an egg

(I cut the recipe in half because there's only the 2 of us)
