So easy- so fun- when you can't/won't do take out!
Buy ground beef in bulk for cheaper prices, or ground turkey.
This is also very thin turkey bacon I bought for .99.
The cheddar is a splurge; Tillamook.
I prefer homemade buns- but these are homemade pickles :-)
Now- the sauce:
about 1/3 cup Thousand Island Dressing
1/2 t black pepper
several dashes of Tapatio or other pepper sauce
Not the most frugal meal by far, but it does beat the price I would pay for my family to eat a burger like this from anywhere else and that's not to mention the gas!
