Adirondacker Burgers

The horseradish gives these burgers a tasty kick, and the sauce makes it unique.

Makes 4 burgers

8 slices smoked bacon
1 pounds ground sirloin
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
salt and pepper
8 ounces sliced cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley (or 1 t dried)
1/3 cup finely chopped chives
4 buns or rolls, split
1 bunch arugula or spinach leaves

In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels. In a medium bowl, combine the sirloin, Worcestershire sauce and horseradish; season with salt and pepper. Form into 4 patties. In skillet over medium high heat, add the beef patties and cook, turning once, for 8 minutes for medium (or cook on grill - my preferred method). Melt the cheese on top of the patties during the last 2 minutes of cooking.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the sour cream, parsley, chives, and lots of pepper. Place the cheeseburgers on the roll bottoms and top each with 2 slices bacon and some arugula or spinach leaves. Slather the bun tops with the sour cream sauce and set into place.

These sound good. Cant wait to give them a try if it ever gets warm enough to grill.
