Day 133, Bacon Ranch Burgers

Sorry I haven't been able to update lately. Life just sometimes gets in the way. This was a different bunch of toppings for my burger.

Bacon Ranch Burger

1 pound lean ground beef
4 slices bacon
4 tbsp ranch dressing
1 cup French's French Fried Onions
4 buns

Form ground beef into 4 patties, cook in a large frying pan over medium heat until desired doneness, approx. 5 minutes per side for well done. Form bacon into circles; bake in a 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes until desired crispiness. Split buns if not already cut. Place one burger on each bun, top with bacon, 1 tbsp ranch dressing on each and french fried onions.

Serves 4

I decided to make my burgers like this from inspiration from some fast food restaurants that top their burgers with ranch dressing and onion rings. They looked yummy, so I decided to try this version myself. My husband loves the french fried onions on his green bean casserole during the holidays, so I decided that placing them on burgers would go well. Lean ground beef was on sale a couple of weeks ago, so I got the 90-10 beef and this works really well for burgers because I can't rinse the fat off a burger.

Flavor Rating: Great, I liked this combination. It may not have been the healthiest burger, but it tasted very good.

Ease of Preparation: Moderate, form your patties thin and indent the center for even cooking. Check my baking bacon recipe in my BLT recipe.

  1. Mmm..I love ranch burgers! You know what is really good...taking a packet of dry ranch seasoning and mixing it in with the ground beef before forming the patties. YUM!!!
