contest BEGIN! Burger Royale Part 1

Not open for further replies.
Bumper's poked at my bloody bun fears in terms of the beet aesthetics, but ultimately wins me over w/ yogurt sauce ... I'm a big fan of tzatziki and raeta etc ...
Just polished off two, should have stopped at one. I'll be making these again, fresh flavours bouncing around my mouth including that lovely peach 7 pot, and the beef wasn't overpowered, really balanced.

Mix 2 tablespoons of chimichurri to each of your ground beef patties prior to shaping them to avoid overworking the meat
Fry two slices of bacon per burger
Grill burgers to desired temperature or overcook them due to unforeseen circumstances and just prior to that special moment add the bacon and cheddar cheese but before that slice the buns and place them on the grill





Instead of cutting pictures in 1/2 or double posting them can I add both crappy burgers to one post?
