BLT Ranch Burgers

Did I say BLT and ranch and burger? All three in one recipe? Yep. I made these burgers for a group of friends one afternoon and they pretty[ much lost their minds. The ranch dressing is rich and creamy next to the beefy burger with that crispy bacon, lettuce, and tomato. They are truly indulgent!]

  • For the dressing:
  • 1 cup (240 ml) mayonnaise
