Stuffed Burgers

Stuffed Burgers


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

Preheat grill to medium. Cook on rangetop if you want!

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 done-ness is reached, approximately 4 minutes each side for medium.

Serve on buns with garnishes.

Alternative: In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, sear the burgers 4 minutes on each side.
