  • 1 burger, store bought or homemade
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2-3 slices bacon
  • 2-3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 hamburger buns, any kind, split


  1. These burgers work when they are timed perfectly. You may have a better idea but this is how we prepare them. Preheat your oven to 275 degrees. Prepare a rimmed baking sheet with tinfoil and set aside.

  2. We barbecue, bake or fry the burgers, with 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt sprinkled over top of each one. We usually take our hands and press the salt slightly into the top of the burger if they are store bought. If the burgers are homemade then I put the salt right into the burger mixture and we skip this salt step.

  3. Once cooked, place them in the oven, on your prepared sheet, to keep warm.

  4. In a large skillet prepare your bacon until crisp. Place on paper towel to drain.

  5. As bacon is cooking slice or split your hamburger buns. You can toast or heat them if desired. We sometimes do and sometimes do not. That is up too you.

  6. Smear peanut butter all over the bottom half of your buns. Quickly, as the bacon is cooked and drained, and still hot, place on top of the peanut butter.

  7. Immediately after, place your hot burgers on top of the bacon. The idea here is to slightly melt and warm the peanut butter. Place the top half of your bun on top of the burger and serve immediately. We usually do not add anything else on top of the burger. Enjoy!
