These Cheese Stuffed Burgers are filled with cheese, bacon, and onion for a burst of delicious flavor in each bite of burger! Barbecue sauce is added to the burger mixture, giving it another level of flavor. Basically, this I is an outside in burger, which means all of the stuff you put on the outside of the burger is stuffed inside!

If you are looking for a quick and easy weeknight dinner that is full of flavor and textures, then this cheese stuffed burger is it!
Stuffed Burgers Are A Tasty Way To Have It All!
Recently I had the sudden urge to stuff a burger with all kinds of yumminess. I recently bought a new grill and had the urge to grill some burgers and decided to try out a different way of putting them together.
My family loves this burger with barbecue sauce and instead of coating the stuffed burger with it, I decided to mix some high into the meat mixture. I crisped up some bacon, browned some diced onion, and filled the center of the burger with the bacon, onion, and cheese. Serve these delicious burgers were grilled to perfection and served on buttery toasted buns with a little extra sauce on top!
What You Need To this Burger Recipe
*Please see recipe card for full ingredient list and instructions*
One pound of one of the following (or a combination of those listed to equal 1 pound): ground venison meat, ground beef, ground turkey, or ground chicken. Choose a fattier meat to keep the burgers moist. If using ground venison, I like to add ground pork to it to add fat. For the turkey and chicken, I choose a higher fat content ground meat.
Sweet white onions
Pre-cooked bacon, I prefer this brand.
