This 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.
