I buy whole boneless pork loins and grind half for recipes just like this one. These burgers are to die for. Didn't have bacon so just left it out and they were absolutely delicious. Second time making them I skipped the cheese (our preference), put them on a French Hamburger Bun (Publix Grocery Stores.) We like the green apple relish applied directly on the surface of both halves of the bun. Very juicy, a little messy but wonderful. The best burger in the world.
I play on a men's semi-pro Baseball team, over Memorial day weekend we had a break. So I thought I would have my team over to my house for a BBQ.
I had everything the recipe had called for but the smoked cheddar. (I couldn't find it to save my life) So I used Tillamook Mild Cheddar.
I became a Burger God with these babies. I had grown men giddy like small children when I told them there was enough for everybody to have two.
Coupled with my homemade chips, and an ice cold Northwest craft beer. This was a perfect recipe to kick off the grilling season!
This recipe is going into my bullpen, and will certainly be in my regular rotation.
Thank you College Girl! Again, you were right!
