Bacon Burger

I know it is a while I posted something on my blog.
Reason is same as usual, busy, lazy , summer etc....
Plus Shyama left to Egypt a week ago for 2 months as she was accepted to join a Excavation team to her delight ( we knew couple couple of months ago)

They say third time lucky as twice her trip got canceled because of the the political situation there and she was really hopping that nothing will go wrong this time.

Any way she is doing very well there she is staying in Luxor in the West bank and yesterday I skyped with her for the first time as she didn't had internet connection till two days ago.
And got a virtual tour of the house she is staying and heard from her how everything is there etc... and I feel much better as I was really not feeling that good about the idea she beeing there etc... ofcourse normal I think for a mom to be worried.

Now to the recipe , I made this burger a while ago and I thought I better blog this before the summer is gone.
I wanted to take a picture of the burger for the blog so in the hurry to take picture I totally forgot to add most of the garnish, but I have a pic in the post with all the garnish which I took before I ate mine :-)

For 4 people:

600 gram pure beef mince
2 tbsp of fried onions ( the one we get from the asian store)
Pepper and salt to taste
1 tbsp of butter or oil
8 slices of bacon ( used 2 slices per person) ( I fry them in a little oil till cisp)
4 slices of cheddar cheese
1/2 red onion finely sliced
4 tbsp of fried onions
4 slices of tomatoes
Few slices of pickled Jerkins
4 burger buns ( I used pistolet which we get here)

Ingredients for the sauce:
3 tbsp mayonaise
2 tbsp mustard
3 tbsp of sour cream
1 tbsp of chopped chives
Salt and pepper to taste
( Mix all the ingredients for the sauce )

Mix the beef mince, with 2 tbsp of fried onions with salt and pepper and make 4 burgers.
Heat butter/ oil in a pan and fry / grill the beef burgers both the sides till they are cooked inside.

This is how I serve them.
Preheat the oven  slice each buns into half, and heat them up in the oven the same time on top of each burger I keep a slice of cheese and keep under the grill in the oven to slightly melt the cheese.
When the buns are hot and the cheese is melted. Assemble them topping them with slices onions, tomato, jerkins, fried bacon and then sprinkling the fried onione and add a tbsp of the sauce. Close the burger with the other slice and serve with friets ( french fries)
