These insanely good bacon burgers pack a ton of chopped bacon right into the burger patty. Pair with your favorite toppings for unbeatable flavor!
Well, fresh off the big announcement from our last post, it would seem hard to come up with anything as significant, but if there’s anything that compete with impending fatherhood for my attention, it’s bacon. Ok, ok, it’s not really a fair competition, but I’d say bacon is amazing enough of a food to occasionally distract me.
Ain’t No Fakin’ These Bacon Burgers
I’m confident most people have had a burger with bacon on it, and I am likewise confident that most people have the following complaint: there’s not enough! Oh sure, there’s a slice or two, but despite its assertive flavor, it get’s lost to sheer mass of the bun, patty, and toppings. Well not today! Chopped bacon will make up about half the mass of the burger patty in this bacon burger recipe – it’s not just a strip or two slapped on top – so unless you take some odd, grazing bite, you’ll get a full punch of bacony goodness.
It’s breakfast for dessert – or dessert for breakfast? – with these fluffy Pancake Cupcakes, topped with a buttery melt-in-your-mouth Maple Bacon Frosting.
How many of you wake up (almost) ever morning and try to figure out a way to justify eating dessert for breakfast? No one? Just me? I can live with that. And this recipe for pancake cupcakes is just the excuse I need.
PANCAKES PANCAKES PANCAKES!!!
Pancakes really hold a special place in my heart. Growing up, they were a Sunday tradition, and I would probably count them among the first recipes I ever made. There is something very comforting about chowing down on a big plate loaded with fluffy pancakes, dripping with butter and syrup. Um, I’ll uh, be right back…
[Wipes syrup from mouth…] Where were we? Right! Pancakes! So they’ve always been delicious, but when I got older, and started to learn of the deliciousness of alcoholic libations (and the unfortunate results of excessive enjoyment), I also learned how awesome they are as drunk food. I became a vocal advocate for the post-party pancake run. In fact, Liz once played a voicemail for me where I could clearly be heard yelling in the background “PANCAKES PANCAKES PANCAKES! WHO ELSE WANTS SOME?!”. And if I didn’t manage to get a stack of ’em at the end of the night, you can bet the odds were pretty good I was going to first thing in the morning. So the last meal of the day, or the first the next day. Not unlike…. DESSERT AND BREAKFAST! I rest my case. (more…)
