Grilled Pork Burgers

These zesty burgers have bacon inside! Bacon! Inside the burger! Yea, get excited because there are some chilies in there too along with fancy cheese on top.

Grilled Pork Burgers
Adapted from Food52

1 1/2 tsp cumin
3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup diced onion
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp thyme leaves
1 tbsp diced green chilies
2 lb ground pork
3 oz smoked bacon, chopped
2 tbsp chopped parsley
6 slices Manchego cheese
burger buns

1. Heat oil in a small pan, cook onions until softened.  Add chilies, garlic, thyme, cumin, and salt and pepper. Cook until another minute or 2.  Set aside to cool.
2. In a large bowl mix pork, bacon, cooled onion mixture, parsley, and salt and pepper.  Portion into 6 oz burgers,  I was able to make 6 because my pork packages were a little bigger than 1 lb each.
3.  Grill burgers 3-4 minutes on each side.  Top with Manchego cheese and grill until melted. Toast up those buns and eat up!

This is a really tasty alternative to your run of the mill burger that you probably need a break from by the summer's end anyway.
