Peanut butter bacon burger recipe

It may sound strange, but the peanut butter bacon burger is a deliciously creamy take on the typical boring bacon cheeseburger.

Peanut butter and bacon cheeseburger

 8 slices thick-cut bacon
 8 slices cheddar cheese (optional)
 ½ cup peanut butter (creamy)
 8 hamburger patties, cooked
 8 hamburger buns, cut in half

Cook the bacon
Place 8 slices of bacon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Turn the oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Once the internal temperature reaches 400 degrees F, cook for an additional 10 minutes or until the bacon has reached the desired crispiness. Remove from the baking sheet to a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess grease.


Assemble the burgers
Toast each half of each bun on the grill for 2 to 3 minutes (spread butter or margarine on the buns first if you prefer). Place a slice of cheddar on the bottom bun, top with a hot burger and immediately top with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and 1 slice of bacon broken into 2 or 3 pieces. Finish the burger with the remaining half of the bun.
