What’s Long Burger? It’s a regular burger, but instead of making a round patty, it is shaped in a long shape to fit a Hot Dog bun, or a sandwich bun. So technically you can use this recipe to make one delicious burger, but I know you’re not that boring. Other than the shape of the meat, this is not an overwhelmingly different burger, but it is super delicious, and I’m sure you’re going to make it many times in the future…
What you’ll need:
- 1 1/4 pound of ground beef
- 8 strips of thick bacon
- 1 medium onion, julienned
- canola or peanut oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- Maple Syrup
- 8 slices cheddar cheese
- 4 hot dog buns or long sandwich rolls
Heat the oil in a skillet. Add the onion and salt, and sauté at least 3 minutes. You can keep them sautéed, or cook them longer until they’re crisp, you decide! (I prefer them crispy). Remove the onions and set aside.
In the same skillet fry the bacon in a skillet until nice and crisp (remove some of the oil if necessary). Place on a paper towel lined plate and lightly brush with maple syrup.
Shape the ground beef into four burgers. Shape them long to fit a hot dog bun or a long roll. Season them with salt and pepper. Add them to the same skillet (again remove some of the oil if necessary).
Assemble the burger: burger, cheddar cheese, onions, bacon. Place on a lightly toasted hot dog bun or long roll (like a club roll). May I say you’re welcome? It’s super delicious! Serve with fries or salad.
