Rach shares a new twist on bacon cheeseburgers—plus her top three burger-making tips.
- Use a hot flat surface, preferably a preheated over medium-high heat cast iron skillet.
- Make patties thinner at center than edges for even cooking and score meat into portions before forming patties.
- Toppings should be applied in even layers, edge to edge so that each bite is the same as the next.
May we also suggest that you wash this juicy burger down with John's Pre-Prohibition Martini—a fun twist on a classic combo.
Bake bacon in a 375 °F oven on slotted pan or wire rack-lined baking sheet in preheated oven, center rack until very crisp, cool to handle and chop into 1-inch pieces.
Combine beef with horseradish, Worcestershire, black pepper, salt, and garlic, mix and score meat into 4 portions. Form 4 large patties, thinner at center and thicker at edges.
Preheat cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add a little spray to the pan and cook patties 7 to 8 minutes, turning occasionally, top with 2 slices of cheese per patty to melt in last 2 minutes of cook time.
Build burgers: bun bottom with even layer of chopped white onions, pickles or relish, burger patty, lettuce, tomato, chopped bacon, steak sauce and bun top.
