Killer Inside Out Burger with Worcestershire Tomato Ketchup

This is a food network recipe. We used the George Foreman grill to make these. We only used 1 pound of ground beef. The ketchup was great! There was a lot of that leftover, so next time I would make half the recipe.

1/4 pound bacon, chopped
1/2 cup minced red onions
3 tablespoons fresh uncooked chorizo, out of casing **we omitted this
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 pounds ground chuck, 80/20 mix****** we only used 1 pound
1/2 pound Swiss cheese, thinly sliced, about 8 slices
4 kaiser rolls, split and toasted

In a medium pan over medium to high heat, add bacon and onions, cook until the bacon is rendered but not crisp. Add the chorizo and cook until done. Remove the bacon mixture to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and cool.

Divide ground chuck into 8 equal parts. Form into a loose ball, and create 4-inch patties. Layer 1 piece of cheese onto the center of 1 patty. Top with 1/4 bacon mixture, another slice of cheese, then add another patty on top and gently seal edges and form into a patty, about 4 inches wide and 1 1/2 inches high. Repeat with the remaining patties to make a total of 4 large patties.

Heat a medium saute pan over medium heat. Place all 4 patties in the pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on 1 side, then gently turn over and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, cover and pop it in a 250 degree F oven for 10 minutes.

Remove from oven, place onto rolls and serve with Worcestershire Tomato Ketchup.

Worcestershire Tomato Ketchup:
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup diced red onion
8 Roma tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch pieces***we used 2 cans diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Pinch allspice
Pinch celery salt
Pinch mustard seed

In medium saute pan over medium heat, add oil and onions. Cook until brown and caramelized. Add the tomatoes, and garlic and cook for a few minutes, just to soften the vegetables. Then add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes.

You can either serve the ketchup chunky or puree it in a blender first and serve it smooth.
