Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers


Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup real bacon bits
  • 4 hamburger buns


  1. Heat grill on high heat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients except the hamburger buns using your hands.
  3. Shape mixture into 4 hamburger patties.
  4. Lightly oil the grill grate.
  5. Place hamburger patties on grill and cook for 5-6 minutes per side or until well done.
  6. Serve on buns.

Serves 4.

Tip: Don’t press down on a hamburger patty while cooking. Pressing the patty squeezes all the juice out causing a dry burger.

Tip: To keep your burger moist when grilling, place a small ice cube in the middle of your patty. As it cooks, the ice cube melts and distributes moisture through the burger.
