BBQ Pork Burgers with Bacon and Cabot Smoky Bacon Cheddar

BBQ Pork Burgers with BaconJust when you think pork can’t get any better, my friends over at Cabot Creamery sent me a cookbook with a BBQ Pork Burgers with Bacon hamburger recipe in it, the picture in the cookbook had me drooling – simply stupendous! If you remember from a couple of months back I told you about Cabot cheese’s cookbook giveaway and this is one of the recipes from “The Cabot Creamery Cookbook”. It’s is a beautiful cookbook filled with delicious recipes from the farmers of the Cabot Creamery Cooperative, all featuring the cheeses of the Cabot Creamery.

One of the things I love about this Hamburger recipe is the addition of grilled onions and grilled bacon to the pork mix, adding additional moisture and flavor. The original recipe calls for Monterey Jack cheese but I cheerfully substituted some Cabot Smoky Bacon Cheddar cheese, an excellent decision on my part!

Ingredients

  • One of the things I love about this Hamburger recipe is the addition of grilled onions and grilled bacon to the pork mix, adding additional moisture and flavor. The original recipe calls for Monterey Jack cheese but I cheerfully substituted some Cabot Smoky Bacon Cheddar cheese, an excellent decision on my part!
  • Prep was fast and easy, with grilling only taking 20 minutes or so.
  • BBQ Pork Burgers with Bacon and Cabot Smoky Bacon Cheddar recipe
  • First things first, get that bacon grilling!
  • My grilling set-up consisted of using my 21″ Weber Kettle and some Kingsford charcoal briquettes, nothing fancy but extremely efficient for making grilled hamburgers.
  • Place your skillet directly of the charcoal briquettes once they first get going so you’ll have plenty of heat under your skillet or cook the bacon directly on the grill for even better flavor like I have done here in this video: How to Grill Bacon
  • Once your bacon is done, you can sauté up some onions, I used red onions for my recipe.
