Nothing beats a terrific burger. It is the easiest and most delicious food to cook while you are camping because it is packed full of carbs and meat. Add some cheese and bacon to the top and you are in burger heaven.
The biggest problem with burgers is that you have to cook a bunch of them all at the same time. This can be a pain at the RV campsite because some grills are not large enough to fit everything. Plus, who wants to waste time cooking burgers when you are super hungry from a day adventuring?
Here is the solution: Mega Bacon Cheeseburger. I had a vision while cooking burgers with my friends about turning 4 burgers into one mega burger. This massive monstrosity of meat and cheese is what was created.
The Mega Bacon Cheeseburger is a double-decker beef paradise with tons of cheese, mayo, bacon and meat. It can be created at any campfire or campsite that can handle its mega patties. Best part is that all these ingredients are super easy to get while traveling the road in your RV.
So, whether you are in your backyard or on the road, I dare you to try this Mega Bacon Cheeseburger. You will not be disappointed!
