Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers
This was a great (and super EASY) hamburger recipe! It was perfect for the weather yesterday - still a little chilly out there but really beautiful and sunny too. It was nice to get to use the grill - I'm looking forward to getting to use it more as the weather warms up!
We each fixed up our buns the way we like them and added some baked french fries and all really enjoyed this meal. I know Kent will be asking for the one leftover hamburger patty for lunch tomorrow! :)

- Preheat grill for high heat.
- Cook bacon over med-high heat until crispy in a cast iron or non-stick skillet; drain on paper towels and dice small.
- Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, cheddar cheese, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and bacon using your hands. Shape the mixture into 4 hamburger patties.
