Why settle for a plain burger when you can bite into a Guinness Burger with cheese and bacon?
► 1 pound ground beef
► 2 tablespoons finely minced onion
► 1 garlic clove minced
► 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
► ¼ cup Guinness beer
► ½ tablespoon olive oil
► 1 teaspoon salt
► ¼ teaspoon pepper
► 4 thick slices cheddar cheese preferably Irish cheddar
► 8 slices thick-cut bacon cooked
► 4 English muffins split and toasted
1. Add first 8 ingredients (ground beef through pepper) in a large bowl and gently mix with your hands. Be careful not to overwork the meat or it will become tough.
2. Form 4 equal patties and place on a small sheet pan. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
3. When ready to cook, preheat grill to medium high. Lightly oil cooking grates and/or patties. Grill to desired level of doneness, placing cheese on for the last minute or two of grilling. Place burgers on English muffins and top with bacon. Serve immediately.
