"My husband prefers it if I fry up the bacon first and then put it on after the burgers are grilled.  But then again, his food groups are bacon and steak.  (He's a "Meat & Potatoes Kinda Guy.") "

"Made these and loved them!!! Cooked the bacon and threw it in the meat instead of on top. I'd actually add more cheese next time since I couldn't hardly taste it."

"I tried this recipe last night and my wife said it was the best burger shes ever had. I had a couple of issues with it. The main issue was mixing the shredded cheese into the hamburger meat. It made a larger than necessary mess on the grill. I would leave that part out and just melt a slice of cheese on top at the end of cooking. I also left off the bacon, but that was just to cut down on the fat alittle. All in all this was a good burger."

"My husband really liked this burger. Next time I will time it better. I burned these on the grill. I think the bacon flared up and burned the whole burger."

"my grandson mentioned he liked burgers with bacon and I remembed this recipe, so made them for him the next time he visited - they were a very big hit! The flavor is so good and makes a moist burger - will be making these often!"
