Peanut butter bacon burgers

I remember back in mid-June when I was still wearing mittens and a jacket (no joke), hoping that summer would be gracious enough to last a few extra months this year. My wish was granted, as were the wishes of thousands of other Minnesotans. It is technically fall, but summer weather is still here. Wooo! I hear that the winds of change are brewing, but I will take every last little morsel of pleasantness that comes our way. We have been spending time outside whenever possible, and of course putting our grill to use. Dan and I got creative the other night and whipped up a tasty, crazy burger that blew our socks off. Well. We weren't wearing socks, but if we had been they would have landed in eastern Wisconsin.

Cook 8 strips of bacon to desired crispness in a skillet over medium-high heat. Pat with paper towels to remove the grease and set aside.

Light a grill and set to medium heat. Add 1 pound of ground beef (divided in four equal parts and patted into patties) to the hot grill. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes on each side, or to desired level of doneness. Some like it bloody!

Place the cooked patties onto the bottoms of four hamburger buns. Top each burger with:

2 pickle stackers

2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

2 strips cooked bacon

Ketchup, if desired

Top bun


Serve to hungry mouths! Enjoy this warm weather, people. Soon we'll be shivering in our snow boots and complaining about the snot that is freezing our nostrils closed.

Peanut Butter Bacon Burgers

Peanut butter really can go on anything! Trust me on this one.

I was shocked to see this on the internets! My family has been doing this ever since I was a little, I tried a burger with PB once and it wasn't for me, but a few family members can't eat a burger without PB on it :)
