BBQ Bacon Burgers

Burgers and hot dogs are every day staples here in the summer.   Always looking for ways to make them tastier, something different!   I saw this recipe on the Six Sisters' blog, and followed it back to the Taste of Home website.  

Just a few changes on this one- none of us eat mayo, so I swapped it out for sour cream. In a total bonehead move, I cooked the bacon, set it aside to cool and completely forgot to mix it into the rest of the ingredients.   I served it on top.   I used thin cheddar slices on mine, the guys like American cheese on theirs. 

This was the best homemade burger I've had in a long time.   The patties grilled up juicy and delicious.   The sour cream/barbecue sauce topping was perfect.    My husband wolfed down two in record time and said that he hoped this will make the regular rotation.   It definitely will!   Thanks to Joan S for sharing this amazing recipe! Excuse the terrible pictures, this was one I was most definitely more interested in eating than photographing.    :)

BBQ Bacon Burgers

BBQ Bacon Burgers


  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce (used Sweet Baby Ray's)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons steak seasoning (used Penzey's Northwoods Seasoning)
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • sliced cheese (used American for 3 burgers, thin slices of cheddar for 1)
  • 4 hamburger buns -- split, buttered and toasted
  • 4 bacon strips -- cooked
  • Lettuce, tomato and sliced red onion


  1. Heat grill to high, then turn down to medium, spraying the surface with nonstick spray or rubbing it down with olive oil.
  2. In a small bowl, combine sour cream and barbecue sauce. Remove 2 tablespoons of the mixture to another bowl, add the dried onion and Northwoods. Add beef and mix lightly until combined. Form into 4 patties (I use a square burger press).
  3. Grill the burgers with the cover down for about 5 to 7 mins per side. Top with cheese. Cook 1 to 2 minutes more until the cheese is melted. While the cheese is melting, lay the buttered buns on some foil to toast.
  4. Assemble burger- spread each bun with some of the sour cream mixture. Add lettuce, sliced onion and tomato to the top half. On the bottom place the burger and top with the bacon. Devour, then cry because it's gone :)

This sounds delicious! I love sour cream but we are actually a mayo family so we might have to try it both ways ;) Thanks for linking up your recipe on the National Hamburger Day Blog Party!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Strawberry Pizzelles

Pizzelles are one of my favorite childhood cookies and I'm constantly looking for ways to put a new spin on them.  Since one of my favorite summer fruits is strawberries, I swapped out the vanilla in the original recipe with strawberry extract.  This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek !  I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own. I also added some red food coloring to give it a pink hue, but you can skip that if you like.  I use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter, it keeps all the pizzelles the same size, plus it's quicker than using two spoons.   They're delicious as is but you can take them over the top by fashioning them into a cylinder which we like to call fauxnoli.  You can pipe them full of whipped cream or buttercream.  If you want to prepare everything in advance, store the pizzelle in an airtight container, and the filling in a pastry or zip top bag in the f
