Grilled Bacon-Jarlsberg Cheeseburgers

"I usually prefer a hamburger straight up, but bacon inside and on top of the burger AND cheese was just too tempting!! I love Jarlsberg cheese, that mild "Swiss" cheese from Norway famous for it's creamy, nutty taste and easy melting. Prep time includes cooking the bacon. Found this in a grilling handout from Weber; you can use your own burger seasoning, or a different cheese for that matter."

I'm a transplant from Alabama now living in a St. Louis, MO suburb. After many years as a senior consultant, I had to have major surgery with a long recovery period, which is when I found your site. What a thrill!! I spent many years collecting cook books before losing them all (including my Mom's recipes) in a house fire. I still collect books when I can, but more often I frequent 'Zaar and get the best recipes! I rate the recipes I really love, which is why most of my ratings are high. So far I haven't encountered a recipe I didn't like where I didn't change something in the original, and I don't think it fair to give a low rating under those circumstances. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
