Spicy BBQ Bacon Ranch Burger

  • Yields: 4Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef (preferably 80/20 meat-to-fat ratio)
  • 1 packet (1 oz) Hidden Valley® Spicy Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • lettuce
  • 8 slices bacon precooked
  • 4 hamburger buns lightly toasted
  • 1 cup Kingsford® Honey Jalapeño Mesquite BBQ Sauce for basting the burgers and brushing on buns

Instructions

Using Kingsford® charcoal, build a fire for direct grilling and preheat to medium-high (approximately 400°F). While the grill preheats, gently blend ground beef and spicy ranch seasoning mix in a large mixing bowl.

Form seasoned beef into four ¼ pound burger patties.

Grill the burgers for approximately 4 minutes per side until they reach an internal temperature of 160°F. During the last minute of cooking, baste both sides of the burgers with Kingsford® Honey Jalapeño Mesquite BBQ Sauce* and top each burger with a slice of cheese.

To assemble the burgers, place lettuce and tomato slices on each bottom bun, top with a burger patty, and bacon.

Brush additional BBQ sauce on the cut side of the top bun then place on the burger.

*Tip: Always add sauce at the end of the cooking process as too much exposure to direct heat can cause it to burn. Basting with a few minutes left in the grilling process ensures that the sauce has time to caramelize without overcooking.
