Bourbon Barbecue Sauce Burger

There’s no better way to keep a beef burger juicy than sweet and tangy barbecue sauce. Top yours with Cheddar cheese and crispy bacon for the ultimate grilled burger.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon bourbon
  • ½ Cup barbecue sauce, divided
  • 1 Pound ground beef
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 4 slice Cheddar cheese
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked crisp
  • 4 hamburger buns, toasted
  • Lettuce, for topping
  • Tomato, for topping
  • Red onion slices, for topping
  • Pickles, for topping

Directions

Add the bourbon to ¼ of a cup of the barbecue sauce and simmer the mixture in a small saucepan over medium heat until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.  Set aside.

Combine the ground beef, the remaining ¼ cup of barbecue sauce, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix just until combined and then gently shape into 4 patties.

Grill the patties over medium heat, about 5 minutes per side, or until a thermometer inserted into the center of the patty reads 160 degrees F.

Top each patty with a slice of cheese and grill one minute longer.

Place the patties on the toasted buns and layer with lettuce, tomato, red onion slices, pickles, and bourbon barbecue sauce, to taste.
