Ultimate Cajun Bacon Cheeseburger

Recently I came accross Bacon Freaks Bourbon Street Cajun Bacon. It was dry rubbed in all sorts of cajun spices, we weren’t quite sure what to make of the bacon. As we fried it up, it didn’t have that standard bacon scent. It basically made me feel as if I was in the south. This first batch of Cajun Bacon was the star of breakfast with supporting acts of scrambled eggs, home fries, and coffee. Tasty and spicy, but perhaps a bit overwhelming in flavor as a solo act, our feeling was perhaps this type of bacon is one of the few that does not belong as the star of the show. This insipred us to add it to a burger, thus The Ultimate Cajun Bacon Cheeseburger. Now this is where this bacon belonged: glued to a ground sirloin burger by melted cheese on a toasted bun with no veggies. Oh come on! Admit you’d forgo the lettuce and tomato if no one was watching!
This burger was a huge hit and ended up being lunch, dinner, and then lunch again. Give it a try – you won’t regret it.
