This is like a BLT burger. How much better can that get?! Yum!! This was also on the Rachael Ray show, she is the queen of burgers and I have to agree when she says she can't get enough of them! You have to try them, they are awesome!
-4 english muffins $1.00
-1 lb ground beef (free-we do our own beef) it would be about $1.50 if you bought it at a good price.
-8 slices of turkey bacon (you can use regular bacon-but I love turkey bacon!) $.75 (bought on sale with coupon for 1.00 for pkg!)
-4 slices of provolone or swiss cheese (whatever you have) $.50
-4 large leaves of lettuce (free from garden)
-4 large slices of tomato $.50
-chives,chopped (free from garden)
-1 tbs. worchestershire sauce $.10
TOTAL=$2.85 ($4.35 with beef included)
-In a pan heat some olive oil up. Or you can go grill these they are better that way. So go preheat your grill. :) But you need to heat up your pan for your bacon.
-Put ground beef in a bowl. Mix in worchestershire sauce and chives.
-Score the meat into 4 equal sections. This makes your burgers even sized. so one isn't tiny at the end of the batch, they are all the same size! Shape patties with the middle being a little thinner than the outside parts. This makes the whole patty even across so your toppings don't fall off.
-Cook your patties. Then add cheese about last minute of cooking.
-You can also toast your english muffins under the broiler. But watch them carefully or you will burn them or set them on fire, they cook really fast!
-Stack your BLT first with bottom muffin, burger, cheese, bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, muffin. Take a humungous bite and you're in heaven!
*I served this with homemade oven baked fries, and lemon zested fresh asparagus. Happy cooking!!
