Making a burger into a bowl lets you maximize the amount of gooey, melty cheese you can add. 

Ingredients

    • 1½ cups cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 1/2 cup cooked bacon, cut into pieces
    • 2 jalapeños, minced
    • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
    • 2 pounds ground beef
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 teaspoons pepper
    • 6 burger buns
    • 12 pieces lettuce

Preparation

1. Combine cheese, bacon pieces, jalapeños and ranch dressing in a bowl. Stir together, cover and refrigerate.

2. Season the ground beef with salt and pepper in a large bowl, and mix with your hands.

3. Grab a baseball-sized piece of beef. Roll it with your hands into a ball and place on a parchment lined baking tray.

4. Using a clean, empty soda or beer can, press the ball of beef around the can to create a bowl. Make sure to smooth out any cracks.

5. Fill the bowls with the cheddar mixture and refrigerate for 2 hours.

6. Preheat the grill to 350°F.

7. Cook burger bowls over indirect heat for 25-30 minutes.

8. Serve on a bun with lettuce and your favorite toppings.

9. Enjoy!
