Instructions:

 

  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef
  • 8 pieces of bacon
  • Mozzarella cheese slices
  • American cheese slices
  • Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste (or whatever seasonings you prefer)
  • Toothpicks
  • Hamburger Rolls

 

Method:

  • Turn your grill on medium and let heat up for about 10-15min.
  • While grill is heating, divide your ground beef into 4 parts.
  • Take one handful of beef and gently make a hole in the center as you flatten it out into a patty.
  • Fold up a slice of mozzarella cheese into quarters and place it in the hole of the patty.
  • Wrap the outer edges of the patty up and around the cheese, trying not to leave any holes where the cheese might eventually run out when melted.
  • Season the burger on both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • Take two slices of bacon and wrap around the burger in a criss-cross with the ends meeting on the bottom. Put a toothpick through the center of the burger and bacon to help keep the bacon from falling off once grilled.
  • Place the burger on the grill (I put down foil first so that the bacon grease wouldn’t start a crazy fire in my grill).
  • Close the lid and let cook for about 15 min on one side. (My grill does not have a temperature gauge and depending on the heat you may want to flip a few minutes before or after the 15 min).
  • Flip the burger and let cook for another 5 min.
  • Flip one more time, add the slice of american cheese on top, close the lid and let cook for 1min or until cheese is melted.
  • Remove from grill and dress burger however you like.
  • Take a bite and savour the tastes exploding in your mouth!
