If you want to WOW your guests at your next tailgate party on game day fire up the grill and give these Moist and delicious grilled, well done Bacon Cheeseburgers a try. This is a simple recipe to put together, requiring very little prep time. This recipe calls for cooked bacon so if you want to save some time, cook the bacon ahead of time.
I ran into a situation that I had to keep the burgers on warm for a long period of time – to my surprise when I served them, they were still moist, and delicious. Enjoy
Moist and Delicious Grilled Well Done Bacon Cheese Burgers Recipe
- 1 ½ pound ground chuck
- 1 slice wholegrain white sandwich bread (cut into ¼ inch cubes – I put the bread in the freezer for a short period of time to stiffen it up, before I cut it)
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 teaspoons A-1 steak sauce
- 1 garlic clove (minced)
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- ¾ teaspoon pepper
- 4 slices of cheese
- 4 hamburger buns
- 4 slices of bacon (or more depending on how much you want on each burger) cooked until crispy and reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon fat.
- Condiments by choice – I used sliced onion and tomatoes.
- Place the bread cubes in the bottom of a large bowl, add the milk, and then using a fork press the bread into the milk until smooth. Add the bacon fat, salt, pepper, minced garlic, and steak sauce and mix until well combined.
- Add the ground chuck to the mixture, and mix using your hands until thoroughly combined. Divide the mixture into four equal parts and form 4 patties about a ½ inch thick, placing a small dent in the center of each burger.
- Heat, clean, and prepare the grill on high heat. grill the burgers on high heat on one side until well browned. Reduce the heat to medium-high and continue grilling the burgers until done. (I used an instant-read thermometer to a temperature of 155 – and then let the burgers rest for 10 minutes before placing on the bun)
- While the burgers are cooking toast the buns on the grill and set aside. Just before burgers are done, place 1 slice of cheese on each burger, close the grill, and continue cooking until cheese is melted.
- Let rest for 5 – 10 minutes and serve on the bun with bacon and condiments.
