Recipe of the Week: Hamburgers

Since Summer is right around the corner I think I am going to keep doing a lot of “Summer-Centric” recipes for awhile. That is okay though-because who does not love all this Summer-Time awesome food choices. Especially the BBQ. I know what you are thinking-these should all be fitness diet recipes about getting ripped or huge-there will be those in this section as well-a lot of them.

However, there is a theme that will be played out over and over again on this website and particularly the diets: Eating clean 100% of the time, everyday-will drive you insane. You will go crazy trying to do it all the time. You will also drive everyone you know crazy and you will become a hermit. You need to have cheat meals-they are mandatory. Read that again-Cheat Meals are MANDATORY. I am not going to go into the specifics here-just take it a face value for now.

With that here are killer hamburgers with cheese and bacon:

TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
MAKES: 4 servings

2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon steak sauce
1/4 teaspoon cider vinegar
1 pound ground beef
4 slices sharp cheddar cheese
4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
8 cooked bacon strips
Optional toppings: lettuce leaves and tomato, onion and pickle slices


In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into four patties.
Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat or broil 3 in. from the heat for 4-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Top with cheese. Grill 1 minute longer or until cheese is melted. Serve on buns with bacon and toppings of your choice. Yield: 4 servings.
