Ingredients
  

  • 2 Lbs Ground Chuck Beef 80% lean / 20% fat
  • 4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Pepper
  • 2 Bananas
  • 1/2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • Peanut Butter
  • 6 Pieces Bacon
  • 4 Hamburger Buns
  • Honey optional

Instructions
 

  • Begin cooking bacon. You can put it in a pan, in the oven for 15-20 min at 400 degrees.
  • Get a pan warm (medium heat) and drop in brown sugar and bananas. Cook for a couple minutes and flip. Coating with melted brown sugar. Cook until caramelized but not too gooey.
  • Get your grill/pan/etc hot
  • Mix salt and pepper with the meat. 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. Put the buns face down on the grill for a minute or two. Cook until you reach the correct temp (140F for medium), usually about 2 to 4 minutes.
  • Spread peanut butter on bun and add burger. Top with bacon and bananas. Enjoy!
