for 4 servings

  • 5 strips bacon
  • 4 oz (115 g) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup (35 g) green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup (100 g) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 lb (455 g) ground beef
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns, toasted


  1. In a pan over medium-high heat, add the bacon, and cook until crispy. Transfer to a cutting board and roughly chop.
  2. In a bowl, add the bacon, cream cheese, green onions, and shredded cheddar. Mix well.
  3. Divide the ground beef into four even portions and shape into balls. Form a well into the center of each, large enough for the cheese mixture.
  4. Place a quarter of the cheese mixture into the center of each ball, and enclose inside the ground beef. Gently press each ball into a patty shape, and season both sides generously with salt and pepper.
  5. Heat a cast-iron pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the burgers and cook for 4-5 minutes on one side.
  6. Flip the burgers, and cook for 2 minutes. Add a slice of cheese on each burger and cook for an additional 2 minutes, until the burger is cooked through and the cheese is melted.
  7. Remove burgers from pan, and place on top a toasted burger bun. Top with condiments of your choice.
  8. Enjoy!
