index

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey jack
  • 4 slices cooked bacon
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 large hamburger buns, split
  • Favorite condiments
  • Canola oil

Directions

  1. Combine the jack cheese and chopped bacon in a bowl and stir well.
  2. Put the beef in another bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Separate into 8 balls of meat, roughly the same shape.
  4. Flatten 1 ball in the palm of your hand. Squeeze together about a tablespoon of the cheese and bacon mixture to make a little nugget and put it in the center of the ground beef.
  5. Flatten another ball of meat and lay on top of the cheese and bacon. Pinch the edges together and flatten slightly for a nice patty shape.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 three more times. Set patties aside on a platter in the refrigerator while preparing the grill.
  7. Place a large grill pan on 2 burners over medium-high heat.
  8. Brush the grates with oil to keep the burgers from sticking.
  9. Grill the burgers for 8 minutes per side for medium*
  10. Remove the burgers to a clean side plate while you toast the buns.
  11. Rub the grill rack with more oil and place the buns cut-side down, toast for 1 minute.
  12. Serve with favorite condiments, and additional bacon.
