Recipe by CattieCann
READY IN: 46mins
YIELD: 3 burgers




  • For Bacon: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and parchment paper (this saves on clean up time).
  • Place all the bacon on the cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Check the bacon; you might have to bake it for about 5 minutes more.
  • Take bacon out of the oven (leave the oven on; but turn it down to 350 degrees) and let cool on a paper towel covered plate. When cool enough to handle, chop 6 slices of the bacon into small bits. There should be 2 to 3 extra slices put aside for topping the burger.
  • For the Burgers: In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, chopped bacon, and sea salt. Divide into 3 patties.
  • Sear the patties on the stove top; 3 minutes for the first side on medium-high heat. Then turn the heat down to medium and sear the second side for about two and half minutes.
  • Then, put the seared burgers on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil and parchment paper and pop into the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • After 15 to 20 minutes take the purger out of the oven. Place on a plate covered with paper towels and let drain for a minute or two.
  • Put on toasted bread, buns, or whatever you like to eat a burger on and top with you favorite condiments. Don't forget the 2 to 3 slices of bacon tha twas put aside.
