Hi Everyone! Today's recipe is a delicious, juicy and super easy to make Burger, this is what I called a "Gourmet Burger", but don't let that title scared you, like I said, this one is super easy to make, the preparation time is around 6 minutes, but we have to let the meat rest for at least 10 minutes before cooking it; so prep. work would be around 20 minutes, and the cooking time is around 15 minutes! I really hope you give this one a try. And hopefully you will love it as much as I did.

Serves 4.
Ingredients:
1lb. ground meat ( I used turkey, but these ingredients work amazing with beef, pork, chicken and lamb!)
3 green onions finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon ground thyme
1 teaspoon dry rosemary
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chicken flavor bouillon (even if you use other than poultry, this works fine with other meats)
Bacon Slices at least 2 per burger (Canadian or Italian bacon works great too)
Cheese Slices 1 per burger
3 tablespoon all purpose flour


To serve:
Hamburger buns
lettuce
1 sliced tomato
1 sliced onion
French fries

Combine the ground meat, with the green onions and the fresh parsley, season with 1 tablespoon of chicken flavor bouillon and 1 teaspoon of each: garlic powder, ground black pepper, ground thyme and dry rosemary. Also add in 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce.

Using a fork or with clean hands, combine all the ingredients together, until thoroughly combined.

Once the meat is well combine with the rest of the ingredients, start making the patties. Divide the meat mixture in 4 equal sections. (or make them the size you prefer.)

Grab a section of the meat and form the patty, then coat it with the flour
and set it a side. Keep on repeating these steps until you have all the patties ready. Let the patties rest in the fridge for at least 10 minutes, this will allow the meat to absorb the flavors of all the other ingredients.

After 10 minutes or so, wrap the patties in bacon.

Grab 2 slices of bacon, place one of top of the other to form a bacon cross










Add the patty right in the middle of the bacon cross.








Wrap the patty with the bacon pieces, use toothpicks to keep the bacon in place. (DON'T FORGET TO REMOVE THE TOOTHPICKS BEFORE SERVING!!!)


Cook the patties on medium heat for about 6 to 7 minutes, or until well cooked. (Top the patties with a slice of cheese just before they are ready. Let the cheese melt.)

While the patties cook, get the buns ready, spread each half of the buns with Mayo and Mustard, and toast them on medium heat for 1 minute on each side, or until warm and slightly crisp.

Once the patties are cooked, you are ready to serve. Build your burgers any way you want!

(I top one half of the bun with lettuce, place the patty on top, add some grilled onions, and fresh tomato slices! You can also add avocado, banana peppers, jalapeno peppers, etc)




Serve with french fries and Enjoy!!
