Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 slices of bacon
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup of cream cheese or marscapone cheese
  • 1/2 cup of bread crumbs*
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp of chili powder
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 4 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Dice 4 slices of bacon. Cook the diced bacon in small pan over medium heat until crispy. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together cream or marscapone cheese, 3/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, 1/4 of the bacon bits, 2 garlic cloves, and salt and pepper.
  3. Form the cheese mixture into balls that are roughly 1-2 tablespoons in size. Makes approximately 6 balls,
  4. Lightly beat an egg in a small bowl. Dip cheese mixture into egg and then coat in bread crumbs. Set aside.
  5. In a medium bowl add meat, spices, 2 more pressed garlic cloves, the remaining bacon bits and 3/4 cup of cheddar cheese. Add the remainder of the egg and bread crumbs left from the last step. Mix together until combined.
  6. Form patties around the cheese balls.
  7. Cook the rest of the bacon in strips. Set aside.
  8. In the same pan you cooked the bacon in, cook the burgers. Cook until the cheese balls in the center melt- approximately 4-5 minutes per side.
  9. Top with your favorite toppings like barbecue sauce, ketchup, mustard, and so on.
