Day 167: Hamburger 2.0

Yield: 2 burgers
Time (Start to Finish): 25 min

½ pound grass fed beef
blue cheese
bacon bits
2 brioche buns
sprinkle cinnamon

1. Spread a very thin layer of butter on a split open brioche roll and toast it
2. Take the meat and mix it with a sprinkle of cinnamon and pepper. Don’t add too much cinnamon, just a pinch to bring out the meat flavor
3. mix the cheese with bacon bits
4. take the meat and split into 2 burgers. You want to take the cheese bacon mixture and but in the center of the burger so the meat is totally covering it. Also make the meat as flat as possible and larger than the bun because it will shrink
5. cook on a grill until it is the done you like, I like it a tad pink
6. serve with condiments of your choice

Rating: 4 strawberries
Notes: These are so good! I know I use cinnamon a lot, but im telling you, it draws out a lot of the meat flavor. The cheese and bacon combo also add a lot of flavor. I like grass fed beef too because it is much more moist (thanks to a taste test with my mom!) These burgers turned out perfect and the bun, im telling you, seals the deal. I dunked mine in ketchup which is why it isn’t shown in the pic.
