Ingredients

  • 4 slices thick–cut bacon
  • 4 ounces shredded sharp cheddar or pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 scallion, finely chopped

    Tired of the same old burger? Stuff it with your favorite cheese and smoky bacon for an over-the-top inside-out bacon cheeseburger.

    Preparation

    1.

    In a medium skillet, cook the bacon over moderately high heat, until crispy, 6 to 7 minutes. Drain, cool, and finely crumble. Transfer to a bowl and add the cheese and scallion.

    2.

    Form the beef into twelve 3-inch patties and season with salt and pepper. Divide the cheese mixture between 6 patties. Top with the remaining patties and pinch to seal the edges completely. Flatten to 4-inch burgers and brush lightly with oil.

    3.

    Light a grill and oil the grates. Grill the burgers over high flames for 6 to 8 minutes, turning once for medium-rare. Toast the buns, top with lettuce, tomato, and condiments and serve right away.
