Did you just go blind looking at this fabulous burger? Good.
Let's talk about indulgence for a kiss.
I like it. I need it. It's healthy! It is. Even Julia Child herself confirms this with her beautifully notorious quote, "Everything in moderation. . . including moderation." Oh
, I like her too.
Indulgence brings on the giddy pants. It makes your eyes do backflips on their way to the back of your skull where they remain as you speak in tongues and collapse and melt into a pile of happy human goo from sheer satisfaction. Of course indulgence is only meant for special occasions. Or as I like to call it, life.
Now let's talk about these Grilled Bourbon Bacon Burgers
. I mean if we even can. By now your mouth has most likely turned into a pond of drool in which you could probably go fishing in.
Beef. Bacon. Bourbon. Green Chiles. Melted Aged Cheddar. Onion Buns. Yes Everything Needs To Be Capitalized.
Let's make them before you slip into a coma.
Grab some beef, some bacon (not pictured because I was already so excited about making these I blacked out), some bacon bits, some Old El Paso diced green chiles, aged white cheddar, some BOURBON (hey! you just sipped it. well, okay.)
, some crisp lettuce and some onion buns.
Mix everything together in a big bowl. Yes, yes.
Then form 4 equal patties with yer hayands. At this point you can either cover and marinate them in the fridge for as long as you want, or go ahead and grill them.
Oh, there's the bacon! Mmmmm.
Okay, let me say something real quick. My husband stacked the cheese this way, which I wouldn't have done. I'd have placed them next to each other for quicker melting. But you can do whatever ya please.
Okay I changed my mind. LOOK AT THAT CHEESE MOUND. Glory be.
Arrange, slice and serrrrrve, buttons!
Oh me oh my oh me me me.
Indulgence. You should totally get into it.*If you're curious about that glaze on the cheese: a little more bourbon whisked with some Asian sweet chili sauce. DEW EET. For more musings, visit her blog at Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.
