Stuffed Chipotle Bacon Cheese Burgers #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone Happy Father’s Day!

Today for #SundaySupper we had to make a man recipe.  Well when I think of a man recipe two things come to mind, bacon and beef.  So I thought, hmmmm, add a little chipotle pepper to it and you will have the perfect manly meal, and oh a perfect meal for me too!  he he  So for today’s recipe I made  Stuffed Chipotle Bacon Cheeseburgers!  Oh my gosh, amazing!!

This is one out of the world burger. It is made with chipotle peppers, bacon and stuffed with cheddar cheese. My gosh a burger couldn’t get any better in my mind. After all we all know nothing is better than bacon! What’s to boot you have just enough bacon in the recipe to give it the perfect flavor, so it is  not a lot of calories, plus if your like me top it with a little bacon too, why not? It’s Father’s Day, time to splurge! Oh and one of the best parts is my Chipotle Aioli Sauce. Its spicy, creamy, low-calorie and darn good! I use it all of the time!

Since I am talking about the Chipotle Aioli Sauce I should tell you it’s not just for burgers, but is great for dipping sweet potato fries, baked veggies, chips and even grilled chicken. It’s made with greek yogurt, lime juice, mayonnaise, cumin and of course finely chopped chipotle peppers. I LOVE this sauce! It has made an appearance on my blog several times over the past few years and I can guarantee you will see it again soon!

For the burgers, I used lean ground beef and mixed it with cooked bacon, ground pepper and chipotle peppers. Yes, this is kind of spicy burger. Hey, I like the heat. But you can tone it down with the peppers. Just use your best judgement. For an added boost of flavor and fun, I also stuffed the burgers with cheddar cheese. Cheese is wonderful and a little bit goes a long way in the recipe.

Making the burger is pretty easy too. Once I mixed everything together, I weighed my meat into 2oz size patties. I added a little bit of cheese to one patty and topped it with the other 2oz, to make a 1/4 pounder burger. I let it sit in the fridge for a few minutes and off to the grill it went. Cook each side for about 5 minutes and you have the ultimate Father’s Day burger!

I know I am a woman after all, but to be honest these are my kind of meals! I love peppers and beef and well I have to say a hamburger is probably one of my favorite indulgences. I could probably live on burgers. Nothing like somethign stuffed between two pieces of bread!  I wanted to let you know for the bun I used a gluten-free roll and oddly enough my family liked it! Score!

I want to wish all of you Dad’s out there Happy Father’s Day! I hope you have a relaxing day!!
