Amazing homemade bacon cheeseburger

Along with making tons of soaps and whatnot, we also try to make a lot of food at home to cut down on costs.

Recently, I was craving a bacon cheeseburger.  I drove over to Hardee's and was only moderately pleased with the burger I bought for $5.  

So, the craving rolled around again and the hubs suggested I make one instead of buying.
"Fine!  Get me the bacon, buns, and beef." I replied.
So, off I set to make my bacon cheeseburger.  The results were ahmazing!!!

I took 1 lb of beef and seasoned with season salt, pepper, and worchestershire sauce.  To the mixture, I added diced onion and peppers (we always keep a supply of a frozen "seasoning blend") and italian bread crumbs.  (I couldn't tell you any measurements because I rarely measure anything.  Eyeball it and season to your tastes.)

I shaped the meat mixture into four patties and baked for 16 minutes at 375 degrees.

While the burgers cooked, I fry the bacon in the pan, sliced the tomatoes, and toasted the buns.

Once the burgers were done, I put slices of American deluxe cheese on top, and bacon on top of that.  The heat of the burgers and bacon sufficiently melted the cheese.

I dressed the burger with the tomatoes and spinach leaves (instead of lettuce), and VOILA! My awesome homemade bacon burger!
I always feel all the more accomplished when what I try to make turns out as or better than expected!

Go forth and conquer your cravings and homemade foods!
