Cooking Directions for Single Meal

  1. Preheat the grill.
  2. Grate the onion with a cheese grater.
  3. Combine the ground beef, bacon crumbles, grated onion (with juices), minced garlic and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Form into 4 patties.
  4. Place the patties on the grill tray or veggie basket. See note about ways to keep patties together when grilling. Grill for 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until internal temperature should reach 165 F. If you need to cook the patties a little longer then you can move them to a cool part of the grill until they’re cooked to your liking.
  5. Prepare salad or veggies.
  6. Once burgers are cooked, top with sliced sharp cheddar cheese. Add to lettuce leaves.
  7. Serve Cheddar Bacon Burgers with veggies or salad.

Freezeasy Meal Prep Directions

  1. Grate 1 small white onion with cheese grater.
  2. Combine 2 lbs. ground beef, 1 cup bacon crumbles, the grated onion (with juices), 2 tsp minced garlic, and 2 tsp salt in a medium mixing bowl. Form into 8 patties.

To each gallon-size plastic freezer baggie, add the following ingredients:

  • 4 burger patties
  • Foil between patties, if needed

Remove as much air as possible and seal. Add label to baggie and freeze.

Freeze & Thaw Instructions

Put baggie in the freezer and freeze up to 6 months in fridge freezer or 12 months in a deep freezer. Thaw in the fridge overnight, or a warm bowl of water for about 20 minutes, before transferring to the grill and grilling as directed.

Special notes

If you don’t have a tray for your grill, put the patties in the freezer for 30 minutes to help them firm up and hold together better when grilling. Or you could grill them from partially frozen. Alternative cooking method: wrap the patties tightly in foil and place them in a 350 F oven for about 5 – 10 minutes until the desired temperature is reached.

Dairy-Free Modifications

Omit the cheese slices for dairy-free meal.

Gluten-Free Modifications

Recipe is gluten-free when served with lettuce wrap.
