Bacon Cheeseburger

Bacon Cheeseburger

What better way to celebrate summer than a delicious, juicy bacon cheeseburger. A beautifully grilled burger with cheese melted perfectly, toasted buns and three slices of bacon on top. I tell you, it cannot get any better than… wait. Can it get better than that? How do you take such an American icon as a bacon cheeseburger and make it better? Well today, we are going to try. Instead of placing bacon on top of the burger why not place the bacon inside the burger?

I was finally able to convince the better half that I needed a grinder attachment for our Kitchen Aid. Yes, she let finally get one. Now to convince her that I need a chainsaw without her saying something about cutting an arm off or something like that. I was not really listening but whatever.

If you do not have a grinder, you can dice up the raw bacon but it still is not quite the same. Anyways, this burger is the best burger I have ever made at home.  I hope you enjoy it as much and the boy, the girl and the other boy. Did I tell you teenagers eat a lot?

Bacon Cheeseburger

Bacon Cheeseburger


  • 1 ½ lbs. ground beef ( I used 90% lean)
  • 1 ½ lbs. ground bacon (use really good bacon)
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • More S&P
  • Buns of your choice
  • Cheese of your choice
  • Melted butter


  1. Heat grill
  2. Mix ground beef, ground bacon, onion powder, garlic powder, Worcestershire Sauce, and 1 teaspoon each S&P. Now this will get messy but that’s ok. Get one of those evil teenagers to do it.
  3. Form into patties. Depending on the size of patties, the amount will vary. For sliders, you will have a lot. For ½ pounders… well you can do the math.
  4. Once grill is to desired heat, season the tops of your burgers with S&P and place seasoned side down on the grill. Season the top with S&P again
  5. Cook for about 4-5 minutes before flipping. Do not place or move around your burger. You want to form a nice crust on your burger.
  6. Flip burger and cook for 1-2 minutes. Then place your choice of cheese on top and cook for 1-2 minutes longer. We want to melt that cheese into gooey goodness.
  7. Remove from grill and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Let rest for 5 minutes
  8. Baste the inside of the buns with your melted butter and cook on the grill cut side down for 1-2 minutes depending on the heat of your grill.
  9. Assemble the burger with your choice of condiments and enjoy.

I have to say this was a blast to make and now that I have a meat grinder, I will never use store bought ground beef for my burgers. Thanks for stopping by and live, laugh, love & learn.
