THE Bacon, Cheese, Mushroom Melt Burger


As the end of August creeps up on us, we are all probably getting close to putting away our "Summer Fun" and trading it in for our "Autumn Mode"...but hopefully you will keep your BBQ grill handy and use it for a while longer-- because trust me, after you try these burgers...you're going to want to leave your grill up and ready to go year round...because these burgers are seriously the best I've ever eaten (and I don't even like bacon, but on these, its a must and I loved it!)...even if I did create them on my own...I can brag just a little bit can't I?! My wonderful son-in-law is a huge fan of Bacon Burgers...so my REAL test will be to make them for him and see what he thinks...but I am 110% sure that he will love them!!! Until then, you'll have to try them and give me some feedback on what you think...I'm pretty sure they are going to make you smile and possibly ask for another one!

THE Bacon, Cheese, Mushroom Melt Burger

Ground Beef, shaped into hamburger patty's...fairly thick
Liquid Smoke (my 16 year old son said that this is what made the burger "POP"...he loved them!)
Mushrooms, sauted in melted BUTTER until done
(if you don't like mushrooms, then leave them off, it will still be AMAZING)
Thick sliced bacon, cooked until done and crispy. Put on a paper towel to absorb any extra grease

Hamburger buns
Butter

Velvetta Cheese
Milk

Burgers:
Prepare hamburger patty's, as many as you want. Put a small amount...(just enough to spread around) liquid smoke on top of each raw hamburger patty, apply with a spoon and spread around so it completely covers the burger or use a pastry brush to spread around if you have one. Grill burgers on your BBQ grill until done, but NOT burnt.

Cheese Sauce:
Cut 1/2 brick Velvetta Cheese into small cubes. Place in a microwave safe dish. Add 1/4 c. milk and stir. Microwave on high for 1:30 minutes then stir, continue to cook and stir every 30 seconds until cheese is melted and forms a sauce (if you like your cheese sauce thinner, add more milk...but we like ours a little thicker...don't add more milk until after its all done and you can see that you are going to want yours thinner).

Buns:
Spread butter on inside of bun (top and bottom of the inside of the bun...not outsides). Place buttered side down in a frying pan and cook until butter is melted and bun is browned. Put grilled burger on bun, top with cheese sauce, bacon and mushrooms. Top with the top of your bun and ENJOY....

* We didn't add any condiments because this burger can hold its own and adding condiments would have taken away from its unique, delicious taste...but if you MUST, then you must.

*CAUTION...this burger has a tendency to make you want more (because it's so YUMMY)...but it's so big and filling that you probably will only be able to eat one...just thought you might want to know.

Happy Cooking~
