Default Could be an ultimate burger

Tonight I am trying the oven bacon method with a wire rack suspended over a calphalon pan, thusly creating perfect bacon and catching all the drippings. Since its pouring rain, Im not going to do the charcoal but rather use a bit of the bacon grease to cook my burger in the pan. Using local organic grass fed ground chuck, throwing on the oven bacon and topping with a thick slice of smoked gouda!

I make a mean burger, but I think this may turn out to be the best indoor burger ever! Going to serve with some brewmaster mustard and a big stein of sweetwater 420.

I guess for a night at home alone, this isn't too bad.

I have done the over bacon before and it is great. I don't know if I would cook the burger in the grease though because bacon grease has a really low smoke point.

Home alone? Shee-yit...

If anyone who reads this knows where you live you'd best have an extra burger or two.

I do enjoy your response arturo! Hell its only a 6 hour flight, then again, you do lose an hour!


Edit: Good call on the low smoke point on bacon grease, I think I am just going to use a bit of oil, could get a little greasy too. Still going to be a sick burger, neighbor just brought over fresh sourdough bread, WORD!

You don't really need the wire rack. In fact, it actually makes things more difficult because the bacon tends to stick to the rack when it's done. Just throw them straight on the baking tray.

I didnt have a baking tray, the cooling rack suspended over an oven proof pan worked great, and now I have bacon grease to make the dog some fine treats!

You don't have a baking tray? But...how do you make cookies? There is nothing like ginger cookies made with bacon grease. Mmmmmm.

Hmm... I think you're joking. But I am not sure. Either way, I am pretty sure I will have to try this!

I do love a big slice of avocado and a thick beefsteak tomato on my burgers in the summer. This burger was probably one the best I have ever had, the bacon was cooked perfectly, the gouda melted just enough, and I used a whole wheat kaiser roll from a local bakery that was baked today. Cooked that thing up medium rare and it was fantastic.

I think at this point hamburger helper would have been amazing, I haven't had red meat in over a month, and this was definitely the way to break back in.
