Bacon Mushroom Ranch Burger

If your still barbecuing burgers, this one is a MUST have. There is a quaint little restaurant that I like to go to that serves something similar to this homemade burger. It's one of my favorites. The trick to it tasting so FANTABULOUS is the RANCH. IF you just use "so-so" tasting ranch, your burger will reflect that "so-so" taste. I like to use my recipe for Ranch Dressing (on this blog, but a separate post) or the Hidden Valley Ranch powder that you mix with mayonnaise and milk...I'm NOT a fan of the bottled stuff...BUT really, this is YOUR burger, find the ranch dressing that you love and use it!

Bacon Mushroom Ranch Burger
ground beef
liquid smoke
seasonings for burger
hamburger buns
1 lb bacon, cooked and drained
sliced cheese (your favorite)
1 package sliced mushrooms
1/4 c. BUTTER
ranch dressing

Divide ground beef into the amount of burgers your going to cook, shape into patties and season with your favorite seasonings. Top each patty with 2-3 drops of liquid smoke and spread around so that entire patty has some on it. Grill (or cook in a frying pan) burgers until done. In a small frying pan saute mushrooms in melted butter until done. Place cooked burger on hamburger bun. Top with sliced cheese, bacon and mushrooms. Drizzle with desired amount of Ranch Dressing. Replace top of bun and EAT UP! Its a great "END of summer" dinner!
