Memorial Day weekend is approaching, and it's the perfect excuse to invite friends over for a beginning-of-summer cookout. This week, we'll give you some recipe ideas. Today's comes from the website www.delish.com.
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 teaspoons chipotle powder
1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoons fresh-ground pepper
1 pounds ground beef
1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1. Heat grill to medium. Combine the sugar, spices, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and set aside. Form the beef into 8 equal patties. Toss the cheese and crumbled bacon together and place an equal amount on 4 of the patties.
2. Place the remaining patties over the cheese and bacon and pinch the edges to seal. Generously pat each burger with the reserved spice mixture. Grill to desired doneness -- about 5 minutes per side for medium.
