This recipe is courtesy of Heidi at Go Bold with Butter. I did things differently; if you compare the recipe that I’ve linked with my instructions, you’ll see how.
1 pound hamburger, 85/15
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 garlic clove
salt and pepper
4 pats of butter
4 slices of medium Cheddar cheese
4 ciabatta rolls, sliced
I did this around 10:00 a.m., so that the flavors would have time to meld. I gently blended the Worcestershire sauce and garlic into the hamburger and placed it back into the fridge. Thirty minutes before forming the burgers, I took the meat out to take off the chill. I used my hamburger press to make four burgers.
I wove the bacon together to make little packets; set the stove on LOW and let the bacon cook while I tossed the ciabatta rolls into the oven on 200 degrees F to lightly toast. Next, I sprayed my skillet with a bit of canola oil, turned the skillet to HIGH and when the oil was hot, gently put my burgers in and then ignored them for about 4 minutes.
When the cheese is melty, place one burger on a bun and top with bacon. I love the way the bacon turned out. It took some poking with my tongs to keep the woven pieces together. I didn’t want bacon, just cheese.
