In 2011 I attended the 'Chefs of the Coast' cook-off where 4 chefs battled it out cooking their own personal recipe using Four Roses Bourbon®. I thought that I could absolutely make a burger worthy of the Four Roses name and this is it. It's a savory burger that is seasoned to perfection and topped with bacon and other assorted toppings.

Ingredients

  • ½ pound lean ground beef

  • 1 tablespoon bourbon (such as Four Roses®)

  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons steak seasoning (such as Montreal Steak Seasoning®)

  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt

  • 2 slices cooked bacon, cut into halves

  • 2 slices Cheddar cheese

  • 2 hamburger buns, split

  • 2 tomato slices

  • 2 leaves lettuce

Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  2. Mix ground beef, bourbon, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, steak seasoning, and garlic salt in a bowl; divide and shape into 2 patties.

  3. Cook on the preheated grill for about 5 minutes; turn, top each burger with bacon and Cheddar cheese, and continue cooking until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, about 5 minutes more for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Serve on split buns topped with tomato and lettuce.
