  • 1 1/2 pound Bacon

  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha Sauce

  1. Combine 1 lb. ground beef with an equal amount of ground pork, mixing delicately to ensure a juicy and tender result. Let the sizzle of this meat blend on the hot griddle set the stage for a mouthwatering experience.


  2. Sprinkle AB's Burger Seasoning over the meat for elevated flavor. Ensure even distribution, avoiding a dense mass.

  3. Choose your preferred cooking surface – griddle, cast iron, or hex clad – each contributing its unique touch to the perfect sear.

  4. Divide the seasoned meat into four portions, forming patties without over-packing. Consider their size, knowing they'll shrink during cooking.

  5. Lay the patties on the hot griddle, allowing them to sear and develop a beautiful crust. Resist the urge to flip prematurely for optimal results

  6. Toast buns with mayonnaise for a surprising twist, yielding golden, crispy results that complement the juicy patties.


  7. While the patties cook, prepare homemade burger sauce by whisking together mayo, W sauce, ketchup, relish, and mustard to taste.

  8. Create the game-changing bacon jam by cooking bacon, onions, garlic, and savory ingredients until they form a smoky, savory delight. Generously spread it on the bottom bun.

  9. Complete the masterpiece with lettuce, a slice of tomato, a perfectly cooked 50/50 patty, and melted American cheese.


  10. Admire your creation – the Best 50/50 Burger with a Twist, a fusion of flavors and textures that will leave your taste buds singing.
