Food & Wine Thursdays: A Delicious Double-Pork Burger

Want an alternative to a hamburger or turkey burger? This pork and bacon burger is moist, smokey, and delicious.

Ingredients:

  1. One pound ground pork.
  2. Two strips thick cut bacon, diced.
  3. One tablespoon of your favorite dry spice mix.
  4. 1 teaspoon each garlic powder, paprika, and black pepper
  5. 2 teaspoons salt
  6. 1 shallot, finely minced (optional)
  7. 1 egg
  8. Sliced cheese (optional)

In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together. Use your hands, don’t be afraid. When the meat and spices are thoroughly mixed, divide the mixture into four even-sized balls. On a cutting board, mash the meat balls down with your hands into four patties about 3/4″ thick.

On a hot grill or grill pan cook the pork burger thoroughly, approximately 5 minutes on each side. FLIP ONLY ONCE! None of that flippy-floppy nonsense. If you want, add a slice of cheese to the patty and cover with a pot lid for the last minute of cooking.

I like my pork burger on a Trader Joe’s honey wheat hamburger bun with aioli, Dijon mustard, and onion confit.

Enjoy!
