So what makes a bacon wrapped cheeseburger ultimate? The answer is simply the best ingredients that come together to make something spectacular.

If you can, have your butcher coarse grind some chuck roast or sirloin to make the best burgers. This makes a remarkable difference to the quality and flavour of the final burger. Once you start this practice, you will likely never look back.

The best thick cut smoked bacon is also essential. Thick cut is important because it will better protect the juicy burger during the longer cooking time and deeply season it with delicious smokey bacon flavour. I like to grill these more slowly and at a lower heat than conventional burgers to render the bacon more and to allow its flavour to more deeply penetrate the beef.

Your favourite toppings and condiments should be you choice to make the burger you like best, but some fresh tomato and lettuce are almost essential to create here what essentially becomes a burger BLT!

Great buns also make a great burger and these larger size Wonder™ Ballpark Classic Hamburger Buns are ample enough to deliciously stand up to this substantial burger. This incredibly delicious cheeseburger is my latest recipe in a summer long collaboration with D’Italiano and Wonder buns from Weston Bakeries.  They are having a 150 Buns of  Summer celebration to bring you many great sandwich and burger ideas throughout the coming months. Be sure to follow all of the recipes, a new one each day over at the 150 Buns of Summer Facebook Page or at one of Canada’s most loved magazine, Chatelaine Magazine’s 150 Buns of Summer page.
