We both LOVED this burger! Absolutely LOVED it!! The burgers were so juicy and the bacon was heaven sent. I baked the bacon in the oven and brushed it with pure maple syrup. I will be making the bacon again for breakfast, or just for snacking. In my opinion, it is good anytime of the day.
The burgers only have a few ingredients. I am sure you have them on hand right now. I am making a batch of these burgers when I make the Beer-B-Q Chicken for Labor Day. It is a great way to finish off the beer (if you don’t want to drink it). Give these a try ASAP!
Maple-Bacon Beer Burgers
- 1 lb hamburger
- 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup beer
- 1 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 6 slices thick-cut bacon
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup (not pancake syrup – use the real thing)
- 3 slices American cheese
- 3 hamburger buns
Combine hamburger, worcestershire sauce, beer and pepper. Form into 3 hamburger patties.
Preheat oven to 400. Place a baking rack on a foil lined pan. Place bacon on rack and bake 15-20 minutes. Carefully remove pan from oven. Brush bacon with maple syrup. Bake additional 5 -7 minutes, until bacon is crispy. Set aside.
Grill burgers approximately 5 minutes on one side, flip and cook an additional 3 minutes. Top each burger with cheese and melt.
Place burgers on bun and top each burger with 2 slices of bacon. Top with additional burger toppings if desired.
