From Linda's Lips: Mixing it in.

I've tried to post this a couple of times, but blogger keeps freezing on me and I lose my work. Ugh! I'm trying again...

(If you don't like the look of raw ground beef avoid the picture below!)

I was given a recipe for blue cheese bacon burgers several years ago and really enjoyed the taste of the blue cheese and bacon mixed into the burger. I have since tried mixing ingredients in my meat and have found I LOVE this way of cooking burgers. I thought I'd share with you a few of the things I have learned over time.
  • raw veggies stay pretty crunchy after the burger is still cooked. Best to saute your veggies first. Ones I like are sauteed mushrooms, onions, and peppers.
  • Cheese is divine mixed in a burger. Cheddar and bacon--yum!
  • absolutely cook your bacon before mixing it in your meat.
  • Raw jalapenos are a little to crunchy for my liking, but I have since discovered jarred jalapenos and they are perfect mixed in the meat!
Try out different mix ins next time you make burgers. The kids love picking their mix-ins and we have much less burger mess with fewer toppings falling out of our buns.

p.s. We still like our pickles and lettuce on top of the burger :)

This ground beef has jalapenos and steak seasoning mixed in before grilling.

I would put in cheese and mushrooms and onions. And maybe a few peppers. Yum.
