The Cowboy Burger

So the weather has been spectacular and it got Kevin and I thinking about making some burgers on the barbecue. So last night when we went grocery shopping we made sure to pick up all the ingredients!

I got to thinking a stuffed burger was what I wanted so I went to work and came up with these honking burgers! They are stuffed with all sorts of good stuff but the key is the cheese and the bacon!

Like with the Turkey burgers I posted I suggest making these burgers in advance and letting them sit covered in the fridge so the flavors can really come together.

Ingredients
1 pound lean ground beef
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1/3 cup finely chopped pepper
1 egg
1/2 cup real bacon bits
1 cup cubed jalapeño jack cheese
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/3 cup oats
1/4 cup crushed nacho chips
1/4 cup crispy onions
4 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon salt free seasoning
Pepper to taste

Cooking
I would imagine these could be pan fried but barbecued is best! I started them on foil liberally sprayed with cooking spray and then transfer to grill for the last five minutes of cooking. Be sure to cook to a safe internal temperature.
