For the Burgers

  • 1 pound 50/50 bacon burger mix or
  • ½ lb lean ground beef
  • ½ lb ground bacon
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Buns

  • 4 hamburger buns toasted
  • sliced cheese of your choice

Optional Toppings

  • tomatoes
  • ketchup
  • mustard
  • relish
  • guacamole
  • onions
  • grilled onions
  • caramelized onions
  • avocado
  • mayo
  • peppers
  • roasted peppers
  • jalapenos
  • lettuce
  • more bacon. because it's the right thing to do.


  • Place the burger mix or beef and bacon into a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine and then form the meat into 4 equal patties of equal size to your burger buns.
  • Heat your grill or indoor grill to medium heat.
  • Place the patties on the grill and grill for 5-6 minutes on each side. Because there is such a high fat content in the burgers, the grill might get a little smoky. Not to worry. This is supposed to happen. Just be sure to have a long metal spatula to flip them.
  • 1 minute before the burger is done, add the cheese of your choice on top and let it melt.
  • Remove the burgers from the grill and serve with your desired toppings between 2 pieces of toasted buns.
