Chipotle Bacon-Wrapped Juicy Lucy Burgers... Yep you read that right. We took the classic Juicy Lucy burger and took it to the next level by wrapping it in our famous Chipotle rubbed bacon.
This is the kind of epic burger we can't resist making. I mean, bacon makes everything better right? Wrapping a cheese-stuffed burger in bacon just makes sense. After crisping up that bacon on a hot grill pan, it adds just the right amount of savory crispiness that you crave when you bite into a burger.
If you want your summer to be epic, this is the quickest way to make that happy. We'll be grilling up these bad boys, all day erry day. Because that's what summer is all about. Happy eating!
INSTRUCTIONS: In a large bowl, mix together beef, flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder with your hands. Divide the mixture in half, and then in half once more. Form 4 round patties, making sure to pat them out thin.
On a large sheet pan, lay 5 bacon strips out in the shape of a star.
Place one of the small patties in the middle and add half of the cheddar cheese to the center.
Top the patty with another patty, firmly pinching the edges to seal it well.
Fold up the strips of bacon over the burger, trimming the ends of the slices as necessary so they lay in a flat layer. Repeat this process to form the second burger. Place the burgers seam-side down on a grill pan over high heat. Cook for 5 minutes per side, or until desired doneness is reached, making sure to flip the burger on it’s sides to crisp up the bacon on all sides.
Serve immediately and garnish as desired.

You know that moment when you get those late night craving for something crunchy and spicy, but your waistline screams at you, "for the love of God woman, don't eat yet another serving of fries!" It's one that us foodies know all too well. That's EXACTLY why I had to create a healthy, crunchy snack to help you with those late night cravings, so you can make more room for bacon at breakfast in the morning.
Green Fries (aka Crispy Baked Avocado Fries) are the best way to get your healthy snacking on without feeling like you're a rabbit. Munching on carrots and celery with ranch dressing gets old pretty fast, you know? Not only are these fries tasty and easy to make, they are served with a Chipotle Dipping Sauce that'll knock your socks off. If you are eating anything this weekend, it should be these fries because they are crispy perfection PLUS all those healthy fats and protein in avocado is proven to help you avoid a hangover. Win-win-win, baby. Happy snacking! [vimeo 161647570 w=500 h=281]Crispy Baked Avocado Fries from Pig of the Month BBQ.
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Add flour to one bowl, beaten eggs to a second bowl and combine the breadcrumbs, cayenne, salt and pepper for the fries in a third bowl. Dredge the avocado slices in the flour, then the beaten egg, and finally the spiced breadcrumbs. Lay in an even layer on a greased, rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes until the fries are golden and crispy. In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce. Serve with the fries, fresh from the oven. Now just pair these Green Fries with a big ol' cocktail or beer and you'll have the healthy balance you've always dreamed of! Recipe, video & photos by Meghan Bassett
