Men's Fitness - Bacon Guac Cheeseburger

Getting free magazine subscriptions is something I do for me and Eddie all the time (Thank You the latest Magazine to come for Eddie was Men's Fitness (September 2012) and inside Eddie found a recipe for an Awesome Looking Bacon Cheeseburger (page 20) that we just had to try
Looks Amazing right??? For ours we left out the produce and guac but it however did not look the same (but do magazine recipes ever look the same) and could have used a few improvements - - However the flavor of the meat was amazing so I'm going to give you guys the recipe followed by what we would do different

Pinterest Fail

Here is how mine turned out They don't look bad but totally tasted like a cracker!!!
There are two things that I am going to do different the next time I try this
1) Bake for only 5 minutes - I baked for 7 and they were almost inedible at that point
2) Going to drape over only one bar - draping over 2 made them too wide

However one thing that I did do right was the chicken for the tacos - If you haven't tried Lawry's Santa Fe Chili Marinade I highly recommend it!
As you can see I didn't use it as a marinade instea…

Copy Cat Cheesy Bread

One of mine and Eddies favorite things to order when we get pizza delivered is Cheesy Bread . . . YUM!!! Just thinking about it makes me drool . . . Anyways on Pinterest there has been a ton of recipes floating around for copy cat recipes and figured I might as well try it out, plus with me making my own pizza crust now I have been looking for something to do with the extra roll of pre-made crust in the fridge. My recipe is based off of Joshua Trent's Recipe, however with mine I have simplified it and added in some extra seasonings
