I purchased some ground pork on sale last week and decided to tackle some pork burgers. I think the only time I've had one is at a fair or carnival...being I do live in the land of PORK, that is pretty sad.
I opted to add a slice of crumbled bacon and diced cheddar cheese to these, as I was pretty certain just plain pork would be boring. Dull. And probably tasteless. They turned out really good and we'll probably be making a reappearance soon!
Bacon Cheddar Pork Burgers
1 lb. ground pork
1 slice bacon, cooked and crumbled
4 sliced chunk sharp cheddar cheese, diced
1 t. garlic salt
1 t. pepper
In a bowl combine all ingredients and mix gently. Form into four patties and refrigerate overnight or at least a few hours to firm up.
Place on tin foil on the grill over medium-high heat. After 11 minutes, flip and remove foil. Grill another 8-10 minutes on the second side or until done.
We went bun less this night and I served them with garlic roasted potatoes out of the oven. Seems like a summer meal even though summer clearly hasn't reached Iowa yet!
What summer meal are you getting excited for?
