The other day, as I was stopping to pick up some meat from Oakland Bay Farm at the Olympia Farmers Market, then informed me that they are now carrying ground beef with their bacon ground into it. I've make some burgers like this before, and it came out really well, but it was a pain to do on a regular basis. Now that they are stocking it as a regular item, I can imagine including it in all sorts of recipes. Meatloaf or meatballs would be great with the bacon mixed in the meat.

While I can certainly come up with a wide variety of meals to make with the baconburger, I decided to try it out with a simple cheeseburger to see how it tastes in its most basic configuration. There's no question, that the bacon fat helped make the burger a lot juicier, and there was a smokiness running through the meat that you just don't get in a normal burger. I could tell that there was bacon in the meat, but I have to admit that I miss my pile of bacon on the top. I plan to play with it some more, but I suspect that I will probably stick with using the baconburger for other dishes, and I'll stick with using their regular ground beef for my burgers.
