Freda Gable incorporates the flavor of bacon right into her thick, juicy bacon cheeseburgers, and they’ll be perfect for your Labor Day cookout. I bet guests will be lining up for seconds.

Adding beef broth to the burgers makes each one turn out perfectly moist and savory. Try adding more kinds of cheeses, too. That’s always a good idea, right?
