Ok so I have a fun little treat for you all today.
If you weren’t already aware, my sweet, adorable boyfriend is Jorge. One might think that because I am a food blogger, I do all the cooking in the relationship; however, that is not the case here. Jorge loves to cook as well, and today, I’m sharing one of his best recipes for Bacon Cheeseburgers.
His burgers start with a mix of freshly ground beef chuck, short rib and bacon. Sharp cheddar cheese is then worked directly into the burger blend, allowing the cheesy tang to permeate the burger.
