Ingredients

  • Your favorite blend of ground beef.

  • I used an 80/20 blend because I think the extra fat makes them juicy.

  • Real bacon bits.

  • Or crumbled up bacon that you have made.

  • Grape tomatoes

  • Fresh mozzarella

  • Fresh basil leaves

  • Steak seasoning - or your favorite burger seasoning blend.

  • Your favorite buns and accompaniments

Directions

Season your hamburger meat well, just the way you usually make them. Make the middle portion of a patty thinner than the edges.Start filling. I am adding some bacon for a great smoky flavor. Add in some pieces of lovely fresh mozzarella.Add in some fresh basil that you have cut into ribbons. Cut them as small or large as you would like. Totally your choice. Just be careful to keep all of your fillings in the center portion. I seasoned up the middle of the patty as well. I used Montreal Steak Seasoning, but you can use any brand or seasoning blend that you like. Mold and seal the pieces of meat together. This was one of the reasons that I wanted the middle portions to be quite a bit thinner than the edges. I wanted to be sure it was cooked through.
