The BLT Burger is your Classic BLT Sandwich with a seasoned & seared Quarter Pound Burger Patty or Marinated and Grilled Chicken Fillet with a few options for a BLT Burger Sauce.

Beef BLT Burger

Use the below Burger Mixin. Just add all the ingredients and toss gently with the very cold ground beef. Weigh out 112g-115g portions and shape into Hamburger Patties, about 1/4 inch or slightly thinner. So that it can be seared for about 3 minutes per side and fill out the toasted bread.

Hamburger Seasoned Beef

Burger Mixin

  • 1 lb Cold Ground Beef
  • 1 tsp Beef Powder
  • 1/2 tsp MSG
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Powder

Burger Seasoning

For the Burger Seasoning, use the Salt & Pepper Blend. A pinch of this can be used to season the Tomatoes too.

Salt & Pepper Blend

Salt & Pepper Blend

  • 1 Tbl Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp White Pepper

Chicken BLT Burger

The Grilled Chicken BLT Burger uses the McDonald’s Grilled Chicken Marinade. Slice Chicken Breast about 1/4 inch thick into fillets. Combine the marinade ingredients and marinate the Chicken. Then Grill the Chicken Fillets in a double-sided grill for 8 minutes or sear over medium heat until done.

Grill Chicken Marinade

Marinade

  • 1/2 C Water
  • 1/4 C Oil
  • 2 tsp Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tsp Chicken Powder & Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 tsp Liquid Smoke & Onion Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper & Paprika

BLT Sandwich

Either a Quarter Pounder or Chicken Fillet on a BLT Sandwich. Go the Classic route with Mayonnaise on Buttered Toast, or Zest it up with the BLT Sauce. This recipe uses Parmesan Toast with Mustarshire sauce for the BLT Burger.

BLT Burger Sauce

There are a few different sauces you can use, or stay with the Classic Mayonnaise. For me, I got to add a bit of Lemon Juice and Black Pepper to the Mayonnaise to make it pop.

However, the Mild Mayo Sauce or Big Mac Sauce works well or the Mustarshire Sauce used on the Mustarshire Burger with added Basil & Black Pepper is wonderful.

Use 1 Tbl of Sauce on both Slices for each BLT Burger.

Open Face Beef BLT Burger

Mustarshire Sauce

  • 1/4 C Hellmann’s Mayonnaise 
  • 1/2 tsp French’s Dijon Mustard & Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Basil
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
BLT Sauce

Zesty Mayonnaise

  • 1/4 C Hellmann’s Mayonnaise 
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper or more
    • Or the Salt & Pepper Blend

BLT Burger Toppings

The Classic Toppings of Bacon, Lettuce and Tomatoes.

Bacon

Before you start anything, place strips of Bacon on a baking sheet and into the oven. Then turn the oven on to 400 F and bake for 10–15 minutes, or until crisp to your liking. Drain the grease off, saving it for other recipes, and transfer the bacon to a plate.

Bacon Halves

Bacon

Snap or chop the Bacon, so the strips cover the BLT Burger without sticking out of the edges too much.

Lettuce

Iceberg Lettuce is the best. Chopped, Sliced or Torn. Washed well and dried. A few Fresh Basil Leaves can be added since they work so well with Tomatoes.

Torn Lettuce

Lettuce

Tear, Wash and Dry about 25g – 30g per BLT Burger.

Tomatoes

Field Tomatoes works just fine. Beefsteak or Heirloom Tomatoes do taste better.

Place the Tomato on its side and slice into 1/4 inch slices. About the same thickness as your Burger Patty, Chicken Fillet or Toast. Sprinkle a bit of the Salt & Pepper blend to season the Tomatoes.
