Whoa, hold your horses! Before you wrinkle your nose at the mention of hearty burgers, let me spill the beans about my Swiss cheese and bacon creation. As someone who truly digs healthy grub, let me reassure you, we’re at the crossroads of delectable and wholesome here, folks!
Right off the bat, fresh swiss cheddar comes into play. It ain’t your ordinary supermarket variety cheese, no siree! We’re talking about the real-deal, quality Swiss cheese that blankets the patty with a creamy, indulgent embrace.
Then comes the crowning glory – the bacon. Now, I don’t mean the pre-packed, over-salted one you’re probably picturing. I’ve cherry-picked the best quality, lean bacon that ensures a satisfying crunch without piling on the pounds. Cooked to golden-brown perfection, this bacon gives our dish its well-deserved lip-smacking finesse.
Of course, what’s a burger without a smoky, sweet BBQ sauce? But, watch out! This is where it gets interesting. Instead of the conventional bottled stuff, I whisk up my secret homemade version. Skimming on the sugar, but still packing an uppercut of tangy, sweet and smoky punches with a hint of spice.
Let’s not beat around the bush here. The key to a phenomenal burger lies in nailing the balance between flavors and nutrition. Striking that balance is indeed a bit of a juggle, but hey, where’s the fun in easy, right?
Voila! My swiss cheese and bacon burger with BBQ sauce! An utterly fulfilling burger that won’t send your waistline into a tailspin! Now, how about that for a change of pace in burger-ville, wouldn’t you say? Eating healthily never tasted so scrumptious!
- Gather the ingredients: beef patties, Swiss cheese slices, lean bacon, whole grain burger buns, lettuce, and last but not least, my homemade bbq sauce.
- Begin by pre-heating the grill to medium-high.
- While waiting for the grill to heat up, layer each beef patty with a slice of Swiss cheese.
- Place the beef patties on the pre-heated grill, cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, or depending on your preferred doneness.
- In the meantime, fry the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until it turns golden brown and crispy.
- As the bacon sizzles, start prepping the buns. Slice each bun in half, spread a good amount of homemade BBQ sauce on both sides.
- Once the patties are cooked to your liking, remove from the grill. Let them rest for a couple of minutes.
- Now, it’s time to assemble the burger. Place a slice of lettuce on the bottom half of the bun. Put the cooked patty with Swiss cheese on top of the lettuce.
- Add the crispy bacon slices onto the melted cheese. If you prefer, you can add another layer of BBQ sauce on top of the bacon.
- Finally, cover everything with the top half of the bun.
- Repeat the process with the remaining burgers.
- Serve right away while it’s still hot, and enjoy your Swiss Cheese and Bacon Burger with BBQ Sauce!
That was fresh!
