Country Pork and Asiago Cheeseburger

Asiago CheeseburgerThis burger is not for the faint of heart but for those once-in-a-great-while splurges, it is excellent.  It’s a meat lover’s burger made with a mixture of ground pork, country sausage, and bacon.  If you would like to tone it down a bit, use lean ground beef instead of the pork.  If asiago cheese doesn’t suit you taste, use mozzarella. 

This recipe makes six quarter-pound plus burgers.


one large sweet onion, sliced
1 tablespoon butter
1 pound ground pork
1/2 pound country sausage
8 strips bacon, chopped
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
salt and pepper
Asiago cheese
6 hamburger or sandwich buns


  1. Cook the onion slices in butter until tender.  Set aside.
  2. While the onions are cooking, mix the ground pork, sausage, chopped bacon, parsley, and thyme together in a large bowl.  Form patties by hand or with a hamburger press.
  3. Cook the patties and top with cheese.  Place the cooked patties on a prepared bun, top with onions, and serve.
