THREE-CHEESE BACON BURGER
1 pound lean ground beef (minimizes shrinkage)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. Tabasco sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tbsp. grated onion (about half of a 2" onion)
4 tablespoons cream cheese
8 teaspoons BBQ Sauce
8 slices bacon, halved and cooked
1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
2 teaspoons salsa
Thoroughly mix first five ingredients.
Separate mixture into four quarters. Separate each quarter into two and pat into two thin patties.
On one patty place a flattened tablespoon of cream cheese. Place second patty on top and carefully seal edges. Repeat with other three quarters of ground beef mixture. Brush top of each patty with a teaspoon of BBQ Sauce.
Broil or barbecue patties five minutes per side, repeating application of BBQ sauce after flipping patties.
Meanwhile grate cheeses and mix together.
When burgers are done, top each burger with 2 pieces bacon, and a quarter of the mixed Cheddar/Monteray Jack cheese.
Continue to cook just until cheese melts. Top each burger with 1/2 teaspoon of salsa and serve on lettuce leaves. You can garnish with thin slices of raw onion and cherry tomatoes.
