I love the combination of bacon, burgers & cheese. The perfect combo for a delicious dinner!
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
8 slices bacon
4 ounces Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon TABASCO brand Original Red Sauce
2 tablespoons TABASCO brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce
4 hamburger rolls
Heat oven to 400 F. Place bacon slices on a rack positioned over a baking pan and brush generously with TABASCO Chipotle Sauce. Bake for 8 minutes, flip, baste again, and bake until crisp about 8 more minutes.
Combine beef, salt and pepper. Form into 4 patties and grill or broil to desired doneness. About 5 minutes per side for medium. Baste burgers with TABASCO Original Red Sauce and top with cheese. Serve burgers with melted cheese topped with bacon on rolls.
Makes 4 servings.
