Juicy and Economic Grass Fed Cowboy Burgers like at Whole Foods

My family loves Cowboy Burgers from Whole Foods.  However, they don’t always have them in stock.  A search for the recipe uncovered a recipe which is super simple.  To make it cost efficient, I use ingredients from Costco.

Why Grass Fed Beef?  Here is a great summary on The Grass Fed Difference

Some doubters will say that the burgers will not be as juicy since grass fed beef is very lean.  That’s why there is bacon and I add extra water. Problem solved!  As for cost savings: Cheese – 9.79 for 24 oz package / Beef 5.49/lb
