Bacon Burgers with Horseradish Sauce

I've been trying to figure out the best way to include some kind of meal planner, or menu planner on this blog and have come to the conclusion that there are simply no good widgets out there. Bummer man. I guess I wanna eat what I wanna eat, not what some app tells me to eat. So, I'm doin' it from scratch!
In the meantime, it has given me reason to ogle over some of my favorite recipes that have gotten a little dusty over time. And I do ogle. Food to me is like diamonds to other girls. I wanna touch it, smell it, look at it... I'd wear it if that Lady Gaga didn't ruin it for me with the meat dress (and now a meat corset, I mean eewww!). Anyway, I love food!!
Many of my favorite burgers are inspired by Rachael Ray... and this is the first one I ever tried. SO YUMMY! A little spicy, a little crunch... mmmmm burger! I have modified the original a little bit.
LET'S GET COOKING!!!
Bacon Burger With Horseradish Sauce
8 sliced smoked bacon
2 lbs. ground sirloin
1/2 cup or so breadcrumbs
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp prepared horseradish
salt and pepper
8 ounces sliced extra sharp white cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
1/3 cup chives, finely chopped **Green onion works to if you can't find fresh chives
4 crusty rolls, split
1 bunch watercress or arugula
Cook bacon to preferred doneness. set aside on paper towels.
In a medium bowl, combine sirloin, Worcestershire sauce, bread crumbs, salt, and pepper. Form into 4 burger patties and heat your grill to 350-400 degrees. Cook to preferred doneness. Add 2 slices of cheese to each burger a few minutes before done to melt.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine sour cream, parsley, chives, horseradish, and pepper.
Place the watercress on the roll bottoms and top with a burger and two slices of bacon. Slather the roll top with horseradish sauce and place on burger.
EASY PEASY AND SO GOOD!! I will say this, although I am all about recipe modification to suit your budget and convenience, try to find the sharp white cheddar... it really does make a difference ;)
