We like our burgers big and bold! So when we make burgers with all the fixings, we go all the way and stuff it, top it, and sauce it like we did with our BBQ Bacon and Cheese-Stuffed burgers.
These burgers (also aptly named the “Juicy Lucy” Burger) are a Midwestern favorite! By stuffing it with cheese, it becomes an inside-out cheeseburger that will knock your socks off! When paired with our Steakhouse Elite Kobe Beef Burgers and stuffed with sharp Cheddar and sautéed onions inside, the end product is a gooey, melted center wrapped in a bold, beefy casing.
Grilled to perfection and topped with crispy bacon, sautéed onions and BBQ sauce on a toasted bun with lettuce and tomato, the only thing that could make this burger better would be to serve it alongside BBQ chips and an ice cold beer.
BBQ Bacon Cheese-Stuffed Burgers
8 slices thick center-cut bacon
1 medium sweet onion, diced
4 Steakhouse Elite Kobe Beef Burgers
1 cup shredded cheese (sharp cheddar)
Kosher salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup BBQ sauce
4 slices tomato
4 lettuce leaves
Sliced dill pickles
4 hamburger buns, toasted
BBQ Chips, for serving
Ice cold beer, for serving
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium-low heat until crispy and cooked through to your liking. Drain the bacon on paper towels, reserving a tablespoon of bacon fat in the pan.
Turn the heat up to medium and cook the onions in the same pan until lightly golden brown, about 8-10 minutes. Set aside while grilling the burgers.
Preheat a grill or large grill pan to medium-high. Meanwhile, cut each burger in half and top 4 burgers with ¼ cup shredded cheese and 1-2 tablespoons of onion, leaving a border around the edge of the patties. Top with another patty and seal the burgers by pressing edges together. Season the burger patties with salt and pepper to taste.
Brush or spray the burgers with the olive oil and grill for about 4-5 minutes per side until burger is cooked through medium (adjust time for desired temperature).
Add lettuce and tomato to the bottom of the bun and top the burgers with BBQ sauce, pickles, and bacon.
