I've decided to contribute to the collection of many wonderful recipes that I find on Just A Pinch, I'm always taking so time to give. This burger was inspired by two experiences, many years ago in Europe where I tasted something similar and the second was having a similar tasting burger from a well know national chain here in the United States. This is my first submission, therefore I really look forward to reading the reviews. Hopefully, more good than bad. Enjoy!!

Bacon, Gouda cheese, and a creamy sauce... what more could you want on a burger? We loved the smoky Gouda cheese with the applewood bacon. The sauce is absolutely delicious and perfect on the burger. It's like Thousand Island dressing with a nice kick. A nice treat if you normally just put ketchup on your burger. If you're not a huge raw onion fan, then leave it of the dressing mixture. It will be just as delish! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Gouda Bacon Cheeseburger

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small bowl combine the Thousand Island dressing, bacon bits, mustard powder, diced onion, and, if desired, a dash of ketchup.
  2. Mix ingredients until combined.
  3. Cook the applewood smoked bacon in a separate frying pan. Drain the bacon and pat dry with paper towels.
  4. Let cool to finger touch and rip each strip into half pieces.
  5. Cook your patties to desired doneness.
  6. Also, toast your hamburger buns.
  7. Construct your hamburger by placing about a tablespoon of the Thousand Island mixture on the inside facing of the bottom half of the bun.
  8. Top this with a slice of Gouda cheese.
  9. Then add the beef patty.
  10. Add another slice of Gouda cheese.
  11. Break your thin slice of white onion into individual rounds, splitting equally between the two buns.
  12. On the inside face of the top half of the bun, add an additional tablespoon of Thousand Island mixture.
  13. Add slices of bacon. Of course, this is your burger, so if you like additional items like pickles, tomatoes, or lettuce, please don't let these instructions stop you.
  14. You're ready to serve! Favorite beverage in hand, onion rings or fries on the side, all up to you.
