Blue Ribbon Barbecue Chicken Cheeseburger

IMG_0151-002This is one really good burger. The recipe originates from Bromberg Bros. Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken in NYC. The combination of bacon, cheddar cheese, and a really good barbecue sauce with the ground chicken patty made it a powerhouse of a burger. I used a really good natural barbecue sauce-no artificial stuff in it or HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), so look for that. I also got a really good thick cut bacon. Just one warning, don’t over warm your sesame buns- they get too crunchy, so be sure and watch that bread. Fast prep, and faster cooking time. Put this on your menu radar for sure.

Blue Ribbon Barbecue Chicken Cheeseburger 

8 thick-cut strips of bacon (I used 4)

1 1/2 pounds ground chicken

salt and pepper

4 slices of aged cheddar cheese (I used what cheddar I had)

Barbecue Sauce, for brushing

4 Sesame Seed hamburger buns, split and toasted

Thinly sliced red onion and tomato and shredded iceberg lettuce ( I used a butter lettuce-it’s what I had)

Cook bacon in skillet and place aside. Cut strips in half. Pour off all but 2 Tbls. of bacon fat from the skillet.

Form the ground chicken into 4- 1/2 inch thick patties and season with salt and pepper. Add the patties to the skillet and cook over moderately high heat until browned on the bottom, about 4 minutes. Flip the burgers, top with cheese and crisp bacon and cook until the cheese is melted and the burgers are just cooked through, about 8 minutes.

Spread barbecue sauce on the bottom buns and top with cheeseburgers, slice onion, tomato and lettuce. Close the burger and serve right away. Serves 4. Enjoy.
