“As many recipes are created, this one was a recipe inspired by another recipe. I was reading some cooking magazine where they added cooked cut up bacon to ground beef to make bacon burgers. I said to myself, what's better than bacon burgers? Well bacon cheeseburgers of course. This recipe is the base and can be doubled, tripled, etc. I usually do 4-5 lbs and freeze them all individually for later use.”
4 patties

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the bacon as your normally would until slightly crisp but not crumbling (when doing large quantities, I cook it in the oven on a cake rack atop a baking sheet). Set to cool.
  2. Once cooled, cut of the bacon into bacon bit sized pieces.
  3. Combine all ingredients but the bocconcini. Mix well with your hands so everything so everything is well combined. Divide mixture into 4 even balls.
  4. Slice your bocconcini into 4 pieces.
  5. Take one meat ball and divide into 2 then flatten. Put a slice of bocconcini on one of the patties and then put the other patty on top.
  6. Work the meat so that cheese is completely cover by the meat. Shape into a patty. (I use one of those hamburger presses simply because the patties look better and it's that step your neighbour wouldn't do).
  7. Cook as you normally would.
