Recipe by The Bachelor Chef
"Enjoy the end of summer with a burger with kick with The Labor Day Burger, my own creation. The bacon grease acts as a 'glue' and will cook out on the grill, leaving the flavor in the beef. Excellent with grilled portobello caps! Note: this is a flammable burger due to the grease. It requires constant attention when grilling due to flare-ups."

Well, the hubby went nuts over this burger...even enjoying the avocado! FYI, there are three of us and I was able to get 3 burgers out of a pound of beef and they were huge! I can't imagine how large the burgers would be for 2, a half pound a piece! Don't skip the freezing step, we had no problems with the burgers falling apart or flaring up. Good recipe, thanks!
