Peanut Butter Bacon Cheeseburgers

I made these babies for dinner last night, and I could not wait to share them.  This was my successful attempt, to imitate Haché's Louisiana Burger at home.  When I am at Haché, I've always ordered their Louisiana Burger without veg and add bacon.  Peanut butter + Bacon = winning combination, and I feel they've overlooked that.  I should also add that Haché's sweet potato fries are to die for, but I digress.

If you'd like to assemble your own, here is how I went about it.

For each, you will need:
1 large burger patty (I used a turkey burger, as that is what I'm happiest making at home)
2 bacon medallions (or Canadian bacon if you are in America)
2 Tbsp crunchy peanut butter
Mozzarella or mature white cheddar cheese
1 large bun

I assembled mine in this order:

1 Tbsp Peanut butter
Cheese (which will melt to hold the peanut butter in place)
1 Tbsp peanut butter spread on the top bun

You can either put a cover over your burger in the pan with the cheese and peanut butter to melt it, or covered in the microwave.  Then slide it onto your bun (which I would recommend toasting).

Happy eating!
