Pumpkin Topping

  • 6 Tbsp Pumpkin Puree
  • 2 Tbsp Mayo
  • 1/4 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice optional

Maple Bacon

  • 8 Slices Bacon
  • Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar


  • 2 Lbs Ground Chuck Beef 80% lean / 20% fat
  • 4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Pepper
  • Arugula
  • 4 Hamburger Buns


  • Mix mayo, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin spice in a small bowl.
  • Mix brown sugar into some maple syrup in a bowl.
  • Begin cooking bacon. You can put it in a pan, in the oven for about 15-20 min at 400 degrees. Pull bacon out 5 minutes early and brush with maple syrup mixture. Put it back in the oven until done.
  • Get your grill/pan/etc hot.
  • Salt & pepper the ground beef and then divide into 8oz (1/2 lb) portions (or you can use smaller 6oz portions). Flatten into patties that are about 1/2 inch larger than the buns.
  • Put a thumbprint in the middle of the patty so it doesn’t puff up when cooking.
  • Grill your burgers about 4min on the first side.
  • Flip burgers. Cook until you reach the correct temp (140F for medium), usually about 2-4 minutes.
  • Add arugula to the bottom, then burger, top with pumpkin aioli and then the bacon. Enjoy!
