Now, I happen to be a fan of almost all unhealthy foods. Whether it’s pizza, cheese curds, tacos, or burritos, I love it all. But there’s nothing quite as satisfyingly American as a fat, juicy, artery clogging cheeseburger.

Let’s face it, eating life threatening foods is just a much a part of American culture as football or drinking beer on the weekends. And I wouldn’t change it for a second.

I know I’m a little late to be posting about things to grill, since Memorial Day has already come and gone, but I’d like to share with you my “Drew Darkwell Signature Cheeseburger” recipe.

  1. Grill 2 large beef patties (medium rare)
  2. Melt a slice cheddar and pepper jack cheese on each patty
  3. Caramelize and add onions
  4. Fry and add bacon and mushrooms (save the grease!)
  5. Remove from grill and add lettuce and tomato on toasted buns
  6. Add bbq sauce and mayo
  7. And finally, the most important step – pour the grease from your bacon skillet onto the burger (it’s so unhealthy, but sooo good)
  8. Serve and enjoy!
