BACON & CHEESE STUFFED BURGERS | Giant National Capital Barbecue Battle



1 pound ground beef

1 tablespoon McCormick® Grill Mates® Hamburger Seasoning

1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

4 slices cooked bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

4 hamburger rolls

2/3 cup French’s® Original Crispy Fried Onions

Pickle slices


Mix ground beef and Seasoning in medium bowl until well blended. Shape into 8 thin patties.

Mix cheese and bacon in small bowl. Place about 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture in center of each of 4 patties. Top with remaining hamburger patties, pinching edges to seal filling. If necessary, press lightly to flatten.

Grill over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes per side or until burgers are cooked through. Toast rolls on the grill about 30 seconds or lightly browned.

Serve burgers on toasted rolls, topped with Crispy Fried Onions and pickles, and desired toppings and condiments.
