Bacon Cheeseburger Flatbread

I’ll be the first to admit, I love a good cheeseburger. I know it is grilling season and all, and trust me I love a great burger cooked over charcoal, and I especially have been loving the smash style burgers on a cast iron skillet, but some times you just need to change some things up a bit. I’ll be the first to admit that I typically do not plan what I am going to cook for my family on a daily basis either. A challenge for me? Maybe. Or maybe it is just that I want to eat what I am in the mood for, or simply going off that idea of a ‘Chopped Challenge’, looking through my mystery pantry and refrigerator to come up with new ideas.  This is one of those ideas, and as simple as it was, it turned out to be really delicious, and ultimately a new take on that classic cheeseburger.

Bacon Cheeseburger Flatbread Recipe

Let me also admit that one of my favorite burgers right now consists of cheese, bacon, of course, caramelized onions, and pickles. For some odd reasons, I cannot get enough of pickles when it comes to a cheeseburger lately.

Let’s get started.

Ingredients: (Makes 1 Bacon Cheeseburger Flatbread)

  • 1/2 ground chuck, cooked
  • 1/2 cup of caramelized onions
  • 4 slices of your favorite bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 Tandoori Naan, warmed
  • Pickles
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Start by preparing all of your ingredients. In a large skillet, add the ground chuck, and cook until nice and brown. Drain any of the fat. Add half of the shredded cheese to the ground chuck, give a good stir, and let that melt.  Season with salt and pepper.

Prepare your flatbread by adding the warmed Naan to your plate. Add the cooked caramelized onions to the bottom of the flatbread, then add the cooked ground chuck on top. top with the crumbled bacon, and get ready to dig in.

Now if you love a good flatbread, you have a couple of options. Fold and chow down, or heck, go in with a fork and knife. Whatever the case, the sweetness of the caramelized onions, along with the smokey bacon, and the tanginess from the pickles really make this sandwich a nice little twist to a classic cheeseburger on a bun. I hope you enjoy.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
