Brian Does Bacon, Blue Cheese and Veal Burgers


Our son Brian is one of the best bacon fryers in the world!  His bacon is crispy without being brittle so that it doesn’t explode into shards when you take a bite.  He inherited this talent from his father who is the other bacon frying master.  Brian’s advice to bacon frying neophytes is to take your time, keep the fire moderate, have an organized plan for the bacon when it is cooked and always remember that the bacon is the star, everything else is side issue 🙂


Bacon, Blue Cheese and Veal Burgers

8-12 pieces of fried bacon

1 lb ground veal

Salt and pepper

Vegetable oil spray

4 slices of blue cheese

4 Buns, 8 bread slices, whatever you need.  Toasted or “au naturel”



Tomatoes, sliced

Form the veal into 4 patties, season with salt and pepper, coat a frying pan with the spray and fry the patties on one side, turn, add the cheese on the cooked side and continue to fry until the meat is done and the cheese has softened/melted.

Spread some mayonnaise on both inside pieces of your buns/bread, then layer them with the veal, bacon, lettuce and tomatoes.

    Not a fan of blue cheese, but I love veal! I guess I’ll just have to try it to be sure.

    I tried it, it turned out Brians Beautifully Burnt Bacon Burger….. Only kidding Bacon n blue cheese especially Roquefort go perfectly together, Kids of course had to have salad cream instead of mayo. Burgers like these are our favourite camper van meals, when touring France, buy whatever meat looks nice in the local shops…..
