Burgers are about as all American as you can get but I decided to give this one a bit of a French twist by adding cognac, Dijon mustard, shallots and a good amount of butter!

 

Ingredients:

1 lb. 80/20 ground beef

2 tablespoons butter

1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon minced garlic

1/4 teaspoon finely chopped shallots

1/3 cup cognac

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

About 6-8 strips of bacon {thick cut}

1/2 cup of cheddar cheese {or any cheese of your choice, blue cheese would work well for this recipe but i was all out}

 

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl break up your ground beef and mix in all the ingredients {except the bacon and cheese}.  Divide the meat up in 4-6 equal portions and form patties. Once your grill is pre-heated place your bacon on the top rack and brush a little bit of vegetable oil on the area where you are going to grill your burgers. Grill your burgers to the desired temperature once your bacon is done add a few pieces to each pattie and sprinkle on your cheese. Serve on buns and add your favorite toppings.

    I like sliders, they don’t make you feel guilty for eating 3 or 6 of them in one sitting because they are so small. Like the French twist, Michelle.
