Wednesday, November 09, 2005 Wild Mountain Bacon Cheeseburger

Here's a clone of a Wendy's burger. Wildly delicious!

Southwestern Pepper Sauce:
1/3 cup mayonnaise
3/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 dried oregano
pinch salt
pinch granulated sugar

3 1/4 oz ground beef
1 kaiser bun
1 slice colby jack cheese
2 slices cooked bacon
1 leaf iceberg lettuce
2 tomato slices
2 red onion rings

1. Make the Southwestern Pepper Sauce by combining ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and chill the sauce until it's needed.

2. Form the ground beef patty on wax paper. Make it slightly bigger than the diameter of the bun. Put the patty into the freezer for at least 30 minutes so that it will firm up. This prevents the ground beef from falling apart as it cooks.

3. When you're ready to make the burger, heat up a large skillet over medium heat. Brown the faces of the kaiser bun on the skillet. When the faces of the bun are light brown, use the skillet to cook the beef patty. Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper to the meat, then cook it for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until done.

4. Assemble burger by positioning the patty on the bottom bun. Place the slices of cheese on the beef., followed by the slices of cooked bacon. Place the lettuce leaf on the bacon, then add the tomato slices and onions. Spread about 1 tbsp of Southwester Pepper Sauce on the face of the top bun. Flip the top over onto the rest of the burger and enjoy.
