BBQ Pork Burgers with Monterey Jack


Servings: 4


3 slices smoky bacon

1/2 finely chopped yellow onion

1 lb ground pork

3 Tbs plus 1/2 cup thick tomato-based barbecue sauce

1 - 1 1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce

1/2 tsp salt

4 oz Cabot Monterey Jack, sliced

4 soft onion rolls, split


In small skillet, cook bacon until crisp transfer to paper towel to drain.

Remove all but about 2 teaspoons fat from skillet; add onion and cook, stirring, until soft and translucent, about 3 minutes. Spread on small plate to cool.

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Chop or crumble bacon into small pieces and put in medium bowl; add pork, 3 tablespoons of barbecue sauce, Tabasco sauce, salt and onions; mix gently to combine. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.

Brush grill with wad of paper towel dipped in oil to prevent sticking. Brushing with additional barbecue sauce, grill burgers until cooked through to center, 5 to 8 minutes per side.
