Cilantro Lime Bacon Chicken Burger…

I know it’s a little late in the season for burgers, but we made some this past weekend and I just had to share. I love burgers because are so easy to make and so versatile. While this Thai cilantro burger has been a staple for us for quite some time, I was ready for a change. And what a great change it was!! Introducing our new staple, the Cilantro Lime Bacon Chicken Burger (that’s a mouthful). Hope y’all love them as much as we do!! 

I cooked a few on the cast iron skillet in bacon grease and Scott threw some on the Big Green Egg. I didn’t think they’d be as good on the grill because, well, it is hard to complete with cooking something is bacon grease, but they really picked up a nice smoky flavor.

Wash and chop your cilantro.  Then mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl…

Cut your bacon in half. Then heat your cast iron skillet on med-high, and cook until bacon is brown on both sides (about 8 or so minutes). Turn the heat off and put the bacon on a paper towel and keep the grease in the pan.

Make small patties, a little larger than the size of a golf ball, with the raw meat.  Then heat your cast iron back up on medium and carefully place the patties in the bacon grease.  Cook until brown (about 3-4 minutes) and then flip.  Now turn burner down to medium low and cook until the burgers are done (about 8-10 minutes).  Add bacon on top, some guacamole, tomato, or whatever you prefer and enjoy!

By the way, mason jars rock! Little things like this make me so happy! I don’t know why it took me so long to get organized…okay I do know…but thanks to my creative friend Liz, my life (and pantry) is finally a little bit more organized. Thanks Liz!!
