BBQ Bacon Burgers Recipe

BBQ Bacon Burgers Recipe

With a slice of bacon inside and a tasty barbecue-mayo sauce on top, these are definitely not ordinary burgers. We think you'll agree. —Joan Schoenherr, Eastpointe, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons steak seasoning
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • Lettuce leaves and tomato slices


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and barbecue sauce. In another bowl, combine the bacon, 2 tablespoons mayonnaise mixture, onion and steak seasoning; crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into four patties.
  • 2. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Top with cheese. Cover and cook 1-2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Spread remaining mayonnaise mixture over cut sides of bun bottoms. Layer with a lettuce, burger and tomato. Replace tops. Yield: 4 servings.

"Delicious, juicy burgers! I used ground turkey and turkey bacon (which I did not cook before I made the burgers, I just chopped it up and added it the meat). I used Worcestershire pub burger seasoning in place of the steak seasoning."

"Swapped out the mayo for sour cream, Penzey's Northwoods seasoning. Ended up using bacon as a topping rather than in the meat due to cook's error. Juicy, fantastic burger. Will definitely be in the regular rotation."

"maybe I made this wrong but it didnt turn out to good. I used mircule whip instead of mayo, maybe thats what made the sauce bad?"

I used 90% lean beef, Hellman's old school mayo, onion powder instead of dried minced onion, Montreal steak seasoning, Jack Daniels honey BBQ sauce, and Boar's Head lacey swiss."

"The steak seasoning is a dry mixture, like Montreal Steak seasoning. You can find it in your grocery store with the other seasonings and spices.

I haven't made this yet, but I will be trying it soon. The mayo/BBQ sauce combo sounds good for a summertime burger!"
