Oh my gracious, you guys. We made the best burgers ever this past weekend. Seriously, the best. So unreasonably good.
It’s a little ironic that I’m about to share a massively cholesterol filled recipe mere days after talking about how we are working to lower Christopher’s cholesterol level. But I had actually already grocery shopped for last week by the time we got Christopher’s results so it would have been wasteful not to make the burgers we had on the menu plan. Plus, his PCP recommended moderation, not total elimination of cholesterol. And I’m so glad we made these burgers. Because they were, as I said before, the best.
Remember how I made those Rib Eye Steaks with Whiskey Cream Sauce last week? And I raved about them. And mentioned that we wanted to try that whiskey cream sauce over burgers. Yeah, that was a moment of brilliance. Then I kept thinking about it and the things I love most on burgers. Colby jack cheese, bacon, grilled onions… what if these things all came together to make the ULTIMATE burger? Well, this past weekend… they did. I give you what I call the Whiskey Bacon Burger:
The next time I make these, I’ll make sure we have better lighting and plating so there’s a prettier picture. But I just couldn’t wait to share the recipe. It was too amazing not to share immediately! 🙂
Oooh the whiskey cream sauce… how delightful! This is the amount that one recipe made (just enough for four burgers). We made them for friends and Brodie said next time we need to double the sauce recipe so he can drown his burger in it, haha! And trust me, we will definitely be making these again!
The burger part of this recipe was based off Steakhouse Burgers from Once Upon a Chef
You guys, the pictures do not do this burger justice. The burgers themselves are delicious, but topped with the colby jack cheese, grilled onions, bacon, and whiskey cream sauce… um, oh my gracious. Amazing. The general consensus of the night was that they were awesome and needed to be made again pronto! 🙂 Just maybe after we have a couple of grilled fish dinners first. 😉
Have you ever had a moment of brilliance with a meal idea?
Also, I am still accepting fish recipe ideas! Thanks for the ones you’ve shared so far! 🙂
