These Amazing Grilled Bacon Stuffed Cheeseburgers are a summertime favorite in my house!! Making burgers at home is easy, and can be a fun family meal to cook together. Creating your own burger patty isn’t hard with the tools.

I am a huge burger fanatic!! It is that one thing that will always be worth the Weight Watchers points for me. Eating out can add up fast, so when I was offered the chance to review I went for it!! We decided to make Bacon Stuffed Cheeseburgers, with of course the highlight being bacon!!
First up, the burger press. I was shocked at how easy it was to use. I have always tried making burgers by hand and was always left with a big clumpy mess that never cooks well on the grill or survives being flipped! If you want to know how easy this was to use, my seven years old made our burger patties for us!!!
Bacon Stuff Burgers Ingredients:
- Ground Beef-Use a high-fat or higher-fat ground beef for these burgers; low-fat ground beef will cook fast but also not be as juicy.
- Burger Seasoning– Any burger seasoning will work; I am fond of Whiskey Burger.
- Bacon– Thick-cut bacon works great on these burgers as it adds to their juices and flavor.
- Sliced Cheese
- Hamburger Buns
How To Make Ground Beef Bacon Cheeseburgers:
Turn your oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Layout your slices of bacon and cook for about 10 minutes until they are the doneness you like. We prefer our bacon chewy, but I also knew they would cook some on the grill in the burger.
Use either a nonstick spray or oil to grease up your burger press to stop the ground beef from sticking to it.
Ball up a small amount of meat and smash it into the bottom of the press, once it is covered and thick enough lay in one or two half pieces of bacon.
Top with more burger mixture and smash more covered and the thickness that you are satisfied with.
Either rub your grill with oil or spray with a nonstick spray.
Fire up your grill to medium heat.
Once ready throw your burgers on the top rack of the grill.
Be sure to flip your burgers, do note you will have a flame from the high-fat grease as you flip them.
As you can tell they oozed their gooeyness and flipped in whole pieces together!!! Normally when I make my own patties we end up with grilled crumbles, not a whole patty!! Now the bacon did separate out the burger so it looks like two patties, not just one.
Then assemble your burger after it’s done cooking to the proper temperature and doneness!! And yes I got so caught up in cooking and all that fun stuff I got halfway thru my burger before I realized that I had forgotten the cheese.

- We decided to pre-cook our bacon most the way through. I didn’t want to run the risk the bacon didn’t cook all the way while coated in the ground beef. We opted to bake ours in the oven if you haven’t done this before a bit of warning your house will instantly smell like bacon. We were salivating during the ten minutes it was in the oven (350 degrees) and we were prepping up our veggies!!! Make sure when you pull the bacon out you turn on the bbq and use a nonstick spray on the racks.
- Now to fill your burger press and make your patty it’s really easy. You simply put the white lifter into the base and cover it with ground beef. Then smash it down the black handled piece (Michael called it the burger hulk since it smashed!). We laid two pieces of bacon in ours and covered it with a slice of cheese. This is where you could be creative and stick other veggies, meats, or cheese to your burger. Top your filling with more beef and smash it up again. This will create a good seal around the filing with the meat. Now throw them on the grill!!
