Bacon Cheese Burgers with Tarragon Russian Dressing

I am not a particular fan of fast food. But if you prepare burgers at home and use good quality buns, they can be super delicious. Like these. I have prepared this recipe several times and we always enjoy it. It is my version of a Food & Wine magazine recipe for "Cheddar BLT Burgers with Tarragon Russian Dressing".

1 preparation of ground beef for meat patties
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup ketchup
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp grated onion
1/2 tbsp dried parsley
1/2 tbsp dried tarragon
1/2 tbsp Worcester sauce
6 slices bacon, halved
6 slices sharp cheddar
6 Kaiser rolls
lettuce and tomato slices for assembly

Whisk mayonnaise, ketchup, onion, parsley, tarragon, and Worcester sauce together. Cover and refrigerate. Prepare ground beef as instructed in the recipe for meat patties. In a skillet, cook the bacon of medium heat until crisp, turning once or twice. Drain on paper towels. Reserve bacon fat. Form 6 burgers. Heat 1-2 tsp of bacon fat over medium heat and fry burgers 4-5 minutes. Turn burgers, place a slice of cheese on top of each and fry until cooked through, another 4-5 minutes. Meanwhile, cut rolls horizontally and brown, cut side up, under the broiler in the oven until lightly browned. Serve burgers on bottom halves of rolls and assemble with dressing, bacon, lettuce and tomato slices.
