Why put the bacon, onions and cheese on top of the burger when you can put it inside the burger! This burger is not only great on the grill but every bite bursts with flavor.
Cook: 20 minutes
2 lb ground chuck
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
¼ lb bacon, chopped
2 shallots, thinly sliced
8 oz Swiss cheese, shredded
4 Kaiser buns, split and toasted
Preheat the grill to high.
In a large bowl add in the ground chuck, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper; combine all ingredients together, making sure not to work the meat too much. Divide meat into 8 equal sections and create 4-inch patties.
In a medium pan over medium high heat add in the bacon and cook until rendered. Take bacon out the pan with a slotted spoon and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Add the shallots directly into the pan and cook until translucent and fragrant.
Equally divide the bacon, shallots and cheese evenly between 4 patties. Add a patty over top the bacon, onion and cheese mixture and gently seal the edges; repeat for the other 3 patties. Lightly oil the outside of the patties and place on the grill. Cook on one side for 4 minutes over direct heat, then flip and cook for an additional 4 minutes. Transfer the patties to an indirect heat and allow for them to cook for an additional 7-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and reaches desired doneness.
Remove from the grill, toast the buns and serve with desired condiments. Enjoy!
