Smoky Apple Bacon Burgers

Well, we made it through the long weekend without any snow! Thank goodness! It's still a little chilly out there, but I decided to barbeque tonight anyway. Here's how we finished off the May long weekend:

1 lb. ground beef
1 egg
1-2 tbsp. Smoky Ranch Dip Mix
4 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped
1 leek, finely chopped, cooked with the bacon
1 apple, peeled and diced
smoked Gouda cheese, sliced
toppings (I used lettuce, tomato, and avocado)

Mix together beef, egg, Smoky Ranch Dip Mix, bacon, leek, and apple. (I made my apple pieces a little too big, so the burgers didn't hold together that well, so next time I'd either use less apple, smaller pieces, or just put the apple slices on top with the other veggies at the end.) Form into 4-5 patties and grill on the barbeque. Assemble each burger on a bun with cheese and veggie toppings.
These were awesome! The smoky cheese, sweet apple, and salty bacon were a perfect match. I'll definitely try these out again sometime. Any way to get some extra fruit (and bacon) in a meal is always a good idea!
Pin It!
