Each year when the warmer weather finally arrives, it’s tradition for us to fire up the grill. As a family, we look forward to sitting out back on the porch, talking and enjoying the weather as we are cooking our meals. My husband does the majority of the outside cooking, but I decided to get a little adventurous this week and made these Bacon & Cheddar Stuffed Cheeseburgers all by myself.
It was actually quite an accomplishment y’all, considering I’m terribly afraid of the propane grill. But I put on my big girl drawers, armed myself with a fire extinguisher and face mask, and went to work. Okay, I really didn’t get a face mask, but I wanted one. You know, in case the grill exploded or something.
There were no explosions and cooking on the grill was actually much easier than I expected. My hubby arrived home right as the burgers had finished cooking and he was just as surprised as I was that I cooked burgers on the grill.
My task was to create a Classic American Cheeseburger with my own special touch using Kraft products. I used Kraft Sharp Cheddar Shreds and Kraft Sharp Cheddar Big Slices, and well as Oscar Mayer Bacon (which is a Kraft company) that I picked up at my local Walmart.
These obviously required a bit more time than just making your traditional patties, but the results were worth it.
Bacon & Cheddar Stuffed Cheeseburgers
- 2.5 lbs ground beef (I used 85/15)
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 6 slices cooked bacon, crumbled or cut into small pieces (for filling)
- 1/2 cup Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
- 4 slices Kraft Sharp Cheese Big Slice Cheese, cut in half
- 8 slices cooked bacon
- 1 package (8 ct) hamburger buns
It seriously doesn’t get much better than this folks. The bacon, the cheese, the bacon and cheese — it’s absolute heaven in your mouth.
I tried to get some good pictures of the inside of the burger, but each picture I took didn’t look very appealing. Because the bacon is a reddish/pinkish color, it kind of looks like the burger isn’t completely done on the inside. But, I can assure you, it’s done and it tastes delightful.
If you are a bit of scared of the grill like I was, I’m promise you, it’s not all that bad. I think once you try it once, you’ll really like it. Burgers are the perfect summertime food and I love all the different ways you can customize them to meet your liking.
