We got asked to stuff a burger inside a burger, which is a phenomenal idea. My favorite burger is the Baconator due to it’s simplicity and incredible balance of salt, savory and salt… and savory.  I took this recipe on as a challenge because going into this I wasn’t 100% sure if I could pull off an entire burger, bun, toppings and all into another burger patty.  This is truly a recipe you need to see in action so head over to our youtube channel to check the full thing in motion.

  • Wax Paper
Instructions
  1. Make a miniature baconator, which consists of a slider bun, two small square patties, two slices of cheese, two layers of bacon topped with ketchup and mayonnaise
  2. Take approximately ¾ pound of meat and flatten it out to about ¼" thick and place your miniature baconator in the center of the "raw" meat
  3. Fold the sides up around the miniature baconator until it looks like a breadbowl
  4. Take another ¼ pound of meat and flatten it out and place it on top as the lid
  5. Spend some time blending the two parts together to prevent it from opening up
  6. Grill each side on high heat for 2 minutes until the entire outside surface is browned
  7. Finish it off in a 450°F preheated oven for 20 minutes or until fully cooked
  8. Now you have a baconator inside a round piece of meat
  9. Repeat step 1, with a regular sized hamburger bun, stuffed baconator patty, an additional square ¼ lb patty, 4 slices of cheese, two layers of bacon topped with ketchup and mayonnaise
