Bacon Cheddar Stuffed Burgers with Grilled Asparagus - May 2011

This past Friday I was craving a hamburger and was in the grilling mood. I haven't made hamburgers in a while, and decided to stuff them like I'd seen Rachael Ray and Hubert Keller do on their cooking shows.  I cooked bacon and onions, and shredded sharp cheddar, creating little mounds between two thin patties.  After grilled, I topped off with more cheddar, and made a spicy aoli.  I took a short cut and used pre-made mayonnaise (made with olive oil), and added dijon mustard, garlic, and lemon juice. Buns were toasted, added lettuce and tomato.  Burgers were great!! the cheddar melted wonderfully, and the bacon flavor came through nicely.   I grilled asparagus, dressed simply with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper prior to grilling.
