Bacon Cheddar Burgers

I don't know about you, but I love cooking competition shows. I learn so much from them, and I'm also super competitive. Chopped is definitely my favorite, but I recently watched an old season of Worst Cooks in America. The competitors were tasked to make a burger that wasn't your average burger. That got my wheels spinning. I'm kind of a picky eater, but I thought I could cut out some steps by adding bacon and cheddar to the ground beef. That's how Bacon Cheddar Burgers were born.

Here's what you'll need to make these:
1 pound ground beef
4-6 slices of bacon (chopped)
Shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped onion (as much as preferred)
Onion salt


Add the chopped bacon and onion to your ground beef. Roll about two small handfuls of the ground beef mixture into a ball (as shown in the picture below).

Flatten the patties until they are about 1/2 inch thick. Next, add the cheddar cheese and roll the balls back up. Flatten them again.

Depending on how much cheese you add, it may fall out a little, but that's ok. When you have them flattened to the thickness you desire, lightly sprinkle onion salt on both sides. Also, add a semi-generous amount of pepper to both sides as well.

Grill or broil the burgers until they are well done. When you are finished, you'll have a burger filled with cheesy, bacony goodness. Pair it will mac-n-cheese, and you've got a wonderful meal. Trust me, it will be one of your favorite burgers to make. Oh, and if you have a man in your life, he will be hooked!
