(originally made 7/2012)
We eat burgers a lot in the summer, maybe once a week. It's
sometimes hard to find a balance between the same old thing and not
springing anything too different on Tim, who is pretty much a bacon and
cheese kind of guy. I had some pulled pork in the freezer (pork
roast cooked in the crock for 8 to 10 hrs with a bottle of our favorite
bbq sauce), and bacon, so I thought this would make a nice hearty lunch
for the holiday.
I used American cheese, crisped the bacon in the microwave and also
heated up the pulled pork in there. Burgers were done on the grill,
with just a tiny bit of BBQ3000 seasoning on them. This was another
great meal that I could customize without too much work- Jake had his
minus the pulled pork, mine was minus the cheese. Neither guy likes
the heat, so only mine got the jalapenos. I served them on buttered
and grilled rolls.
Filling, delicious and not very photogenic! But we went off for an
afternoon of blueberry picking, swimming and fireworks with full and
happy bellies. :)
I found this on either Foodgawker or Pinterest, from the blog http://ourlifeinfood.com/2011/08/31/carnivore-burger/. Her pictures are wonderful, go check them out, it's a low carb blog :)
