RECIPE Bacon & Cheddar Cheese Burger With Tomato Jam
Serves 2

A CookTale

This is the second time in a week that I’m writing about a Burger. Blame it on Irene or the fact that it’s an easy dinner solution after a a tough five days of limited electric power. Once again this was a very special Burger. Beside top flight Chuck Beef it included crispy fried Bacon and a thin slice of Cheddar Cheese.


12 Ounces of first grade Ground Chuck
2 Slices of Bacon, fried & broken up
1 Slice of Cheddar Cheese, finely sliced into ribbons
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
2 tsp of Tomato Jam (optional)
1 TB of EVOO
2 TB of Butter for the frying pan


1. In a large bowl, add the Chuck, Bacon, Cheddar Cheese & Salt & Pepper.
2. As gently as possible mix it all together, but do not press it together. Form into two 1″ thick Burgers. About 6 ounces each.
3. Heat a frying pan to very hot & add the Butter; when it stops sizzling, add the Burgers. Cook for 3 minutes on side one, 2 minutes on side two for medium rare. The center should still be pink & juicy. Do not dry it out by overcooking.
4. Plate & serve with the (optional) Tomato Jam
