Dear everyone: those were the best dang burgers I've ever tasted. We're already planning the next sequel.

The simple fact that both Dan and I decided they were the best burgers we have eaten thus-far should be proof enough. We don't toss the word "best" around lightly.

I suggest that if you do not want to die, refrain from eating two...

What's wrong with eating two? I was fine.

It's a delayed effect. How many steps have you taken since then?

Maybe it was the combination of the Lagoon hamburgers I had earlier that day, the two japapeno, bacon, burger monstrosities, and that I took a two hour nap after eating them before work.  I woke up the most orchestral sounds my stomach has ever made.

Ahh, lagoon.  Kinda miss that place. 

Dan should include these burgers in his next book and at the end have instructions on how to make them. :)

So this coming sunday we're most likely gonna have a labor day thing. I plan on making the previously mentioned bacon burgers like i did before, with the afformentioned modification for jalapenos. I also plan on stuffing them with cheese of some form.

current ideas for cheese: Pepper jack, cheddar, feta, or cream cheese.

Not sure which i'll go with, so we'll see.

you may want to mix some egg in with them to hold the ingredients together. The one problem with our burgers was that they had trouble staying together.

yeah, that's what i did when i made the last burgers i mentioned, with just bacon in 'em, i mixed in an egg

though i might up the egg count, as the jalapeno might make things much more difficult to stick

yup - you also may just want to put a fried egg on top of the burger. it would be a terrific addition to the flavor.

i think i've decided on the cheese stuffing after talking to all those involved.

1/3 will be mozzerella stuffed, 1/3 will be cream cheese stuffed, and the last 1/3 will be mozzerella AND cream cheese stuffed.

Edit:
also, i suppose i will try to remember to snap some photos of the making and consuming of said burgers and post 'em here for you guys to see, and help any who need it with the how-to's on making them.

Ok, sorry for the double post, but I made the burgers for the BBQ tomorrow. Here's pics and instructions how to make em, if anyone wants it!!


http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u266/eerongal/CIMG0036.jpg

Step 1: Dice bacon, the smaller the better. Cook in microwave until crisp, but not burnt

http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u266/eerongal/CIMG0035.jpg

Step 2: Dice jalapenos. Again, the smaller the better, even more so with these.

http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u266/eerongal/CIMG0037.jpg

Step 3: Spice beef to taste.

http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u266/eerongal/CIMG0038.jpg

Step 4: Add jalapenos to beef

http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u266/eerongal/CIMG0039.jpg

Step 5: Pour bacon grease on beef. This may brown it slightly, that's OK. Add diced bacon to beef

http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u266/eerongal/CIMG0040.jpg

Step 6: Mix thoroughly

http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u266/eerongal/CIMG0041.jpg

Step 7: Divide into roughly even shaped patties, gently add a small hole with a spoon

http://i170.photobucket.com/albums/u266/eerongal/CIMG0042.jpg

Step 8: Fill hole with desired type of cheese (in picture: Cream cheese and mozzarella). Cover with the remaining beef, and press down thoroughly to seal off patty.

Freeze overnight, or until ready to cook, then grill yourself up a delicious Burger!!

Step 9: Happy labor day weekend, everyone! Feel free to use this recipe at your BBQ!!
