How Do You Make Stuffed Bacon Cheeseburgers in the Oven?

Preheat Oven to 305 degrees

Serves 8

Filling:  

  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 purple onion – chopped
  • 3/4 cup  shredded cheese (your choice)   I use what I have in the frig – either cheddar or mozzarella
  • 1 inch cut piece of bacon as a topper

Burgers: 

  • 2.5 lbs ground beef  (I use 80/20 or grass fed)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (your choice)
  • 5 tsp of Spicy Brown Mustard
  • 1 slice of bacon per burger  (or as many as you like-I sometimes use 2)

To prepare filling – 

Chop purple onion and set aside.

Shred Cheddar Cheese – set aside.

I buy block cheese and shred my own using my Cookware Kitchen Cutter that I have had for years.

I do this since I learned companies put a corn starch or cellulose fiber on shredded cheese to prevent it from sticking together.  They also use a Natamycin mold inhibitor that is not natural.  So for us, block cheese it is.

The cornstarch and cellulose fiber both add carbs to the cheese as well.

If you are adventurous enough, you can make your own cheese.  I have never tried, but would love to  some day.  If you try it, be sure to let me know how it goes….

Here are 4 great links to help you get started if you decide to make your own cheese:

Here a list of supplies and instruction for Getting Started Making Hard Cheese from Homestead In A Holler.

Make Homemade Mozzarella Cheese by Christina Little Sprouts Learning.

Or possibly if you prefer a video instead, How to Make Mozzarella Cheese,  by Jenna at Flip Flop Barn Yard 

And even a third place to learn how to make your own Mozzarella Cheese.  by Kathi, at Oak Hill Homestead.  She raises goats and uses goats milk instead of cow’s milk.  

So if you want to make your own cheese, you have some really great instructors at your fingertips.

Note there are other cheese cutters on the market, as a this Cheese Grater Vegetable Slicer made of stainless steal.  I own this one as well and use it often.  I realize the Cookware Kitchen Cutter is a bit pricey, but  I received it as a wedding gift 25 years ago and it still works very well to this day.  The choice, of course is yours.

Prepare Burgers:

In a large mixing bowl, add ground beef, salt, pepper, shredded cheese and spicy mustard – mix well.

Once mixed well, I use my hands and take out approximately 1/3 pound of ground beef mixture. Roll it into a ball and place them into my  foil-lined cookie sheet.  The foil is strictly help with clean up of my cookie sheet – you do not have to line your sheet. 

Then using 2 fingers, press a “hole” into the center of ground beef and continue to “pinch” and form into a bowl shape.  Note – leave enough ground beef on the bottom to hold the filling.

I learned this the hard way.  It does’t work well when baking and the cheese filler oozes out the bottom or is stuck to the cookie sheet.

After making all your ground beef bowls, place inside a bit of coconut oil (this is just good for you and adds fat to the burger)

Fill with shredded cheese and chopped onion.

Lastly wrap stuffed ground beef bowl with bacon (they will overlap if using more than 1).  Place the 1-inch piece of bacon on top of cheese and onion.

Repeat this for all burgers.  Now it’s time to put your stuffed bacon cheeseburgers in the oven and the house smell wonderful!

Place into preheated oven and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.  (Tip, grease will run out of your burgers as they are cooking.  So be sure your cookie sheet is deep enough or have a run-off pan in the bottom of your oven.
