Variations Ideas

  • Ground Beef – Feel free to use different types of ground beef. We have used ground chuck with an 80/20 count and the burger turned out delicious.
  • Blue Cheese – We love the blue cheese crumbles, but you can use blue cheese dressing for added flavor.
  • Burger Sauce – For added flavor, mix blue cheese dressing and hot sauce together to top the burger.
  • Top with Cheese – If you love cheese, add another level of cheese to the burger. Swiss cheese, provolone cheese or mozzarella cheese is delicious added to the burger.
  • Bacon – Feel free to cook the bacon on the skillet. But you can also cook the bacon in the air fryer or use already cook bacon to top your burger.
  • Seasoning – You can easily change the seasoning you add to the ground beef.

  • Step 7 – Toast Buns – Place the hamburger buns on the grill for approximately 1 minute to toast the buns. 
  • Step 8 – Build Burgers – Serve the burgers on the buns topped with bacon, lettuce and tomato.

  • Bacon – Place the cook bacon on paper towels to remove any grease.
  • Grill Pan – Place the burgers on the grill or grill them in a grill pan.
  • Form Ground Beef – Form the ground beef patties about the same size so that they cook evenly.
