Westlake Ace Grilling Tool: Grillmark Stuffed Burger Set


  • 3 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons barbeque sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 pound bacon, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 6 hamburger buns, split

Grilling Instructions:

  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the ground beef, salt, black pepper, barbeque sauce and garlic powder using your hands.
  • Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown, about 5 minutes. Remove bacon from skillet with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Turn the heat down to medium and pan fry the onions in the remaining bacon drippings until soft and translucent and just beginning to brown. Mix together onions and bacon in a small bowl.
  • Prepare a grill or large skillet for medium heat.
  • As the grill heats, take a small handful of beef (approximately 1/4 pound) and press into the bottom of the patty mold. Top with 1- 1/2 tablespoons of the bacon and onion mixture each, and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Top with another handful of beef (approximately 1/4 pound). Use the patty mold lid to press the patty and to seal the edges together.
  • Repeat this process four times and place the patties inside the grilling cage. Grill the sealed patties until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve on hamburger buns with condiments of your choice.
