Bacon Burger with special sauce

Bacon Burger

This Bacon Burger is full of great flavor, juicy and grilled to perfection, and topped with a mouthwatering sauce! While most bacon burgers have the bacon on top that is not the case here. The bacon is cooked to a crisp, coarsely chopped, and thrown in the ground veal!
Made even better by the added flavor of the crushed sour cream & onion potato chips in this burger patty as well.
Between both the bacon and the sour cream & onion chips talk about exploding flavor with every bite. Your family will be licking their lips and begging for more. For some final touches to your bacon burger, you can leave your buns soft or for an added crunch toast the bun beforehand. Also, what better way to finish off your plate than with a few great side dish options like these from some of our friends: macaroni saladmac & cheeseonion rings, or potato wedges. Cook up this Bacon Burger recipe as the main dish or turn them into sliders and serve as an app. Mix and match flavors from some of our other burger recipes as well:
