Bacon & Blue Hamburger Steaks with Mushrooms


I don't know what it is about a Hamburger Steak, but man 'o' man, are they DELICIOUS!!

Never heard of such a thing? 

Let me fill ya in...
ahhhh the Hamburger Steak. Simply put, the hamburger steak is a patty that is supposed to be representative of a "steak" in shape, but is made out of ground beef just like a burger, yet it isn't sandwiched in between two buns with all the fixin's. Instead, a Hamburger Steak can be topped with anything your creativity and imagination can think of. 
Not to be confused with a Salisbury steak, which is made with minced beef, the hamburger steak is something to behold, and easily made out of your regular ole ground beef. 
Nothing too fancy, right? 

Unless you top it with Blue Cheese, Mushrooms, and BACON JAM! 

Yes, you heard it here first!
BACON JAM!!!

This stuff is the JAM!! (pun intended)
