Top with fresh lettuce and tomato for fiber and antioxidants.
What You’ll Need:
4 slices thick-cut bacon
1 450g 80% lean ground beef
1/2 small diced onion
1/4 cup lager
1 tsp each salt and pepper
4 slices cheddar cheese (optional)
4 hamburger buns
How to Make It:
1. Heat a grill to medium-high heat (between 400 to 500 degrees). In a medium-sized skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to cool. Coarsely chop.
2. In a large bowl, combine beef, bacon, onion, beer, salt, and pepper. Fold ingredients and form into 4 patties, but do not compact too much. Make a 1-inch-wide dent in the center of each patty.
3. Grill burgers with lid closed, until grill marks form, about 3 minutes. Flip burgers, close lid, and continue grilling until cooked to medium, about 4 minutes more. If adding cheese, place a slice on each burger during last minute of cooking. Remove burgers from grill and let rest for 3 to 4 minutes. Serve on buns. Makes 4 servings.
