Great Gourmet Burger

Fire up the grill like always…but tune up your game with a new burger concept, the Great Gourmet Burger. This four-meat burger brought to TABLE by husband and wife team Jackie Hughes and Keith Lampkin, known on Instagram as @supermancooks. We love their take on updating BBQ classics alongside picnic-friendly recipes.

Great Gourmet Burger Recipe

Serves 5

Gourmet Burger Ingredients

  • 8 slices raw bacon
  • 12 oz. ground beef
  • 12 oz. ground turkey
  • 12 oz. ground pork
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • Sharp Cheddar cheese

Burger Preparation Instructions

  1. Start by chopping bacon into 1/8-inch pieces.
  2. Add to a mixing bowl, then add remaining meats and spices and combine using your hands while trying not to squeeze the meat too much (rather, try to lightly mix to combine).
  3. Allow meat mixture to sit in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from refrigerator and divide mixture into 5 equal portions and form into patties.
  5. Cook patties on grill by first pre-heating the grill to 400 degrees and coating grates with oil or cooking spray.
  6. Place burgers on grill and allow to cook for 3 minutes, then turn over and cook an additional 4 minutes.
  7. Make sure burgers reach internal temperature of 165 degrees. Top with shredded sharp cheddar and serve with your favorite condiments.
