The Peanut Butter Bacon Slider...

After my friend Big Spoon, Little Spoon reviewed Shake Shack's Peanut Butter & Bacon Burger, I knew this was something on the must try list...  And at a BBQ seemed like the perfect time.

I was sidetracked by Trader Joe's mini burger buns & opted for them instead of my usual potato buns slathered in butter, Shack style.  I lightly seasoned the meat, hoping that the bacon & peanut butter would add the saltiness, but I think next time I'm going to add a little Worcestershire kick to the patty.

I used some good ole fashioned chunky peanut butter & instead of frying the bacon, we thought we'd try BBQing it.  Which, while it did taste good, it kind of lost a lot of it's bacon-y characteristics.  It was more smoky charred meat. 

All in all, a very good first attempt.  A nice outline for future experimentation!
