  1. Mix ground beef, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper in a large bowl until evenly blended. Form beef mixture into 6 4-inch wide patties. Transfer patties to a large plate and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until patties are slightly firm, about 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels.
  4. Cook beef patties on preheated grill until they are beginning to firm and are hot and slightly pink in the center, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over patties about a minute before they are done.
  5. Mix peanut butter and maple syrup in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat peanut butter mixture in the microwave until slightly runny, about 25 seconds. Stir again.
  6. Spread peanut butter mixture over hamburger buns and top with beef patties, lettuce, tomatoes, and bacon.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Maple syrup is added to Adams® peanut butter due to the brand's lack of sweetness. If you use another brand such as Jiffy, use less maple syrup and perform a taste test.

Astonishing. After all its just a burger but the combination of a little spiciness in the burger meat and the lightly sweetened peanut butter is just brilliant. I was skeptical but this turned o...

I can't believe that I'm saying this, but these were awesome! I LOVED the peanut butter (did not add the maple syrup) combined w/ the bacon and the burger seasonings...Big hit at dinner tonight....

Awesome, the best burgers I have ever made. I leave out lettuce and tomato and add red onion, tzatziki on bun. Add Old cheddar cheese and thick sliced bacon, serve with Ale

Soo good...Didnt have Maple so use any jam, ect.. Super delicious!! Don't put too much Worcestershire into the meat mixture or it could become crumbly..

not sure if it was my husbands grilling or what but they were so dry.
