Bacon, Onion and Cheese Stuffed Burger

Total Time:
35 min
Prep:
15 min
Cook:
20 min

Yield:
4 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce (recommended: Frank's Red Hot)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 strips bacon, diced
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup grated sharp Cheddar
  • 4 burger buns
  • Lettuce, tomato, pickles for garnish
Directions

Preheat grill to medium.

In a bowl combine beef, garlic, hot sauce, salt and pepper, to taste, being careful not to over mix. Warm a skillet over medium heat and fry bacon until crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Keep heat on skillet and fry a pinch of the beef in the bacon fat to test seasoning. Adjust seasoning, if needed, then form 8 even thin patties, about 1/2-inch thick and set aside. Saute onions in bacon fat in skillet until tender, 5 minutes. Place onions and bacon in a bowl with cheese. Form a spoonful of bacon-cheese mixture into a ball, then place in the center of 4 patties. Top each with another patty and seal the edges. Grill burgers over medium-high heat, flipping once until desired doneness is reached, approximately 4 minutes each side for medium. Serve in buns with garnishes. Alternative: In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, sear the burgers 4 minutes on each side.

I hate watching this, its making me so hungry!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
made this for dinner tonight it was very good the burgers were juicy. I even left out the onion. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've tried this with cheddar, colby jack, pepper jack, swiss...all were DELISH!! I don't think I'll ever go back to the cheese being on top. I did borrow a suggestion from another chef the 2nd time making these and that is to brown them for 2 minutes on each side and them finish them off in the oven for 4 to 5 minutes at 400 degrees and I highly suggest getting your cheese fresh from the deli. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Juicy and flavorful! A real crowd pleaser. With the amount of filling the burgers had to be massive, but by the time it cooked down it was perfect bun size! item not reviewed by moderator and published

These stuffed burgers were delicious! Made them last night for my husband and he loved them and took left overs to work. Next time thinking about putting jalapenos or mushrooms. Yumm! Thanks Sunny! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is probably the singe best and easiest burger recipe I have ever made. So simple and crazy good. It allows you to tweak the meat to your desire. Personally I like to make a little extra of the onion/bacon mixture and work it through the meat as well. I add a little seasoning depending on my mood...ranch mix or spicy burger mix! These are so good that I was angry at my kids for eating the burgers that were left over, for lunch the next day, before I could eat them! MINE! = item not reviewed by moderator and published
