Instead of me going home to Daytona for Mothers Day, my Mom visited us in Tampa! We had a wonderful weekend and the only thing that missing was our traditional Mothers Day cookout. So I decided to make the most insane cheeseburger for Mothers Day!
I wanted to think outside the box with this cheeseburger. My friends husband told me about Kraft Natural Slices Jalapeno White Cheddar and I created a recipe around that. I thought about what flavors would work and I kept thinking of a BBQ burger. Something about the jalapeno cheese made me think BBQ sauce and onion petals.
Sadly, there must be a cheese shortage in Tampa as my local Walmart store was out of all Kraft natural cheese so I had to improvise. I ended up using Kraft Deli Deluxe American and Kraft Natural Sharp Cheddar - to make a Juicy Lucy style BBQ burger.
This was hands down the best burger I have ever made - and that is saying a lot. It was equal parts of delicious and messy. A napkin burger for sure!
BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger Recipe, Jucy Lucy Style
For one burger
1/4 pound sirloin patty, I prefer 90/10. Split into two smaller patties, equal sizes.
2 tablespoons of shredded cheddar cheese
2 slices of Kraft Deli Deluxe American (Or Jalapeno White Cheddar if you can find it!)
1 slice of Bacon
Buttermilk Onion Petals
Kraft Spicy Honey BBQ Sauce
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tablespoon of canola oil
As mentioned above, split each 1/4 pound patty in half into equal portions. Roll into balls and flatten into patties. Place the shredded cheddar on one of the patty and place the other on top, securing the edges so the cheese doesn't run out. Sprinkle each side with salt and pepper. Then lightly brush Dales seasoning on top.
Place oil in a cast iron skillet and when it is hot, sear the burger for 3 minutes. Flip and sear the other side for 4 minutes (for a medium rare burger). When there is two minutes left, place your sliced cheese on top.
While your burger is cooking, you can cook your bacon in the oven for a perfect crispy slice (400 for 12 minutes). I also top the burgers with homemade onion straws.
Top each burger with BBQ Sauce and other toppings of choice. Prepare to use a roll of paper towels while consuming! #SayCheeseburger - what is your favorite topping on a cheeseburger?
