This monster is called the Bacon Weave Double Cheeseburger, and it consists of two 1/3 pound ground beef patties – each of which is wrapped in a bacon weave – plus a couple slices of Wisconsin Cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise on a bun.
Since bacon cooks a little more slowly than ground beef, I started off by creating two bacon weaves and cooking them in the oven at 375° for 15 minutes. After taking them out and letting them cool I then wrapped each bacon weave around a 1/3 pound ground beef patty and threw them on the grill. I then grilled my bacon weave wrapped burger patties for about five minutes on each side and then tossed a slice of cheese on each one, took them off the grill and assembled my burger!
After seeing how huge my bacon wrapped ground beef patties ended up it was pretty obvious that having only one of them on a bun would have been WAY more than enough, but at this point I’d already committed myself to making a double cheeseburger so I just went for it.
Despite the fact that I could barely hold my Bacon Weave Double Cheeseburger with one hand it still turned out pretty amazing. One of the things that made this burger so great is that as it was cooking on the grill the burger patties absorbed the bacon grease, which turned it into one of the juiciest burgers I’ve ever eaten.
