Introduction: How to Cook a Crispy Bacon and Cheese Burger

The combination of the bacon and cheese on a patty made from scratch is heavenly.

My local burger bar serves up a similar burger and I wanted to see if I could create my own.


  • Burger Bun
  • Chuck Steak
  • Bacon
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Onion
  • Salt and Pepper

Step 1: To Start Off We Need to Make the Patty.

Setup either a mincer or food processor with the cutting blades.

I’m using chuck beef; I find it has great flavour for a burger.

Mince the chuck beef.

I like my burgers to have a fat ratio of 70% meat to 30% fat, this will give you juicy, tender burgers.

Step 2: Now the Beef Is Minced, Take a Hand Full and Mould Them Into Patties.

Season with Salt and Pepper.

I can’t stress enough how much better burgers are if you make your patty’s from scratch.

Place them in the fridge for half an hour just to firm up.

Step 3: Next, You’ll Need to Light a Chimney of Charcoal.

Setup the BBQ for direct grilling.

Step 4: First Thing We Need to Cook Is the Bacon.

If you want to make your own bacon, you’ll find our homemade bacon recipe on the channel.

Take the bacon off and set one side.

Step 5: Now, Place the Patty Over the Charcoal.

Now, place the patty over the charcoal.

Make sure to rotate the patty minute.

Cook for 2 minutes before flipping.

Place on top a couple of slices of cheddar cheese.

Cover With the Lid for 1 Minute.

Toast your bun, cover and cook for one last minute.

Step 6: Now It’s Time to Make This Burger.

First a layer of iceberg lettuce.

Followed with a couple of slices of tomato.

Then place the patty on top.

Step 7: Followed by the Bacon.

Diced Onion.

Spoon on some burger chutney and place the bun on top.

Step 8: There You Have It! a Crispy Bacon and Cheese Burger.

The combination of the bacon and cheese on a patty made from scratch is heavenly.
