A concoction of pure amazingness. Completely fattening, unhealthy, but it’s freaking AMAZING! It’s the burger without the bun, the salad toppings…this is the no nonsense food. Mhmm. That fantastic 😉
That was my inner hunger monster talking. She’s full of ‘tude.
Anyway, back to what you all stopped by for. The recipe for the MUSHROOM BACON CHEESEBURGER BOMB!
1 pound ground beef (80/20)
3 slices bread, put through a food processor
Generous amounts: seasoned salt, Italian seasoning, pepper, Red pepper flakes
2-3 mushrooms, sliced
6 chunks of cheddar cheese
1/3 onion, chunked
12 slices of bacon
Begin by mixing ground beef, bread crumbs, eggs and seasonings in a large bowl. Grab a bit of the beef (depending on how big you want them), flattening it in your hand. Add a chunk of cheese, a piece or two of onion, and two slices of mushrooms. Cover/roll beef up into a ball. Then wrap two pieces of bacon around it, securing with toothpicks. Do this until you are out of beef/toppings.
Due to the heat wave Alaska has been having I cooked mine in a large skillet on the grill. Rotating the burger bombs multiple times to avoid burning and to cook bacon entirely. No one likes soggy bacon.
Serve with all the toppings!
Happy cooking! 🙂
