Where can you get a substantial Double juicy Bacon Burger with Cheese that is far superior to a drive-thru burger? Right in your very own backyard with this deliciously flavorful Double Bacon Cheeseburger recipe. After today you’ll be spending a little less time at the burger joints waiting in line and more time enjoying your own Homemade Double Bacon Cheeseburger.
The Double Bacon Cheeseburger is one of my all-time childhood favorites to eat during the summer, combining well seasoned lean beef, smoked peppery thick-sliced bacon, garden fresh juicy vine-ripened red tomatoes, red onions, crisp Romaine lettuce, and Deli sliced White American Cheese, on a soft sesame seed bun.
Growing up in a military family, we celebrated the Military and Summer Holidays with pride. The summer was not complete until we had a massive barbeque for every one of the Holidays, such as Memorial Day, The Fourth of July, Labor Day, and so forth. They were essential to my family. It was a time to remember, celebrate, and spend quality time together with our loved ones. This wonderful Double Bacon Cheeseburger was one of our menu items.
I am one of the lucky ones when it came to my parent’s BBQ skills. Both of them could cook up a storm on the grill, and never did we have a dry overcooked burger in our life. Cooking burgers may seem easy, but many do not realize it takes a small set of skills to have a juicy perfectly cooked burger that doesn’t shrink to a dime. My parent’s burgers turned out perfect every single time.
Buns are extremely important when it comes to these yummy burgers. You need a soft yet firm-textured bun that can withstand two hearty burger patties, thick-sliced peppery smoked bacon, sliced juicy tomatoes, tons of White American Cheese, Romaine lettuce, crunchy dill pickles, and whatever toppings your heart desires without falling apart. Let me say this a little louder for you in the back row— Hamburger Buns are essential!
Have you ever made the perfect burger only to have it ruined by falling apart because the bun wasn’t sufficient? That, to me, is so annoying. I’m trying to wear my summer whites Y’all and not be covered in toppings seeping through my bun. Find a bun you love and make sure it can hold up. This is going to be a BIG burger, who am I kidding look at this burger it’s huge! So yes, the bun needs to be soft yet sturdy.
I also need to mention that sides are essential when serving your Double Bacon Cheeseburger. I love serving Baked Beans, Coleslaw, Potato Salad, and Corn on the cob with our meals, and it always seems to go over perfectly with the people attending our get-together. They leave full and happy afterward with smiles on their faces. Desserts are suggested but are not necessarily being there are so many other options on the table.
