Sexy Bacon Cheeseburgers with Special Sauce
A good old fashioned dirty, sexy bacon cheeseburger.
Serves: Serves 2
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp American/yellow mustard
  • 3-4 small green pickled chillies, finely chopped
  • Few drops of worcestershire sauce
  • 300g minced beef (organic, if you can)
  • sea salt, freshly cracked black pepper
  • 4 rashers smoked bacon
  • 4 slices swiss cheese
  • 2 soft white buns
  • ketchup, sliced tomatoes, sliced onion, lettuce and pickles, as desired
  1. First, make the special sauce by stirring together the mayo, mustard, chillies and worcestershire sauce. Taste and add more of any ingredient if you think it needs it.
  2. Divide the beef mince into two, and shape each half into a patty that's just under an inch thick, and slightly larger than your burger buns (it will shrink when it cooks). Try not to work the beef too much, just enough to get it the right shape. Season very generously on both sides with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a cast iron pan or griddle until very hot (turn on the exhaust fan if you have one) and then cook the patties for about 2 minutes a side for medium-well (or however you like them).
  4. Cook the bacon in the same pan (if there's room) until crisp. If there's no room, use a second pan or do it under the grill.
  5. When the patties are done, lay over the cheese, criss-crossing the slices on each patty.
  6. To assemble your burger, spread the bottom buns generously with special sauce, add the cheese-covered patties, then distribute the bacon, ketchup, salad and pickles as desired.
  7. Skewer with a pickle and a toothpick, if desired, and then EAAAAT IT!
