- 2 lbs ground beef (I use venison)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 cup onion, minced fine
- 9 -10 slices bacon
- 8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
- 6 hamburger buns
Fry bacon until crisp; crumble.
Combine beef, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion and shape into 12 large, thin patties.
Top six patties with 1 tablespoon bacon and 1 tablespoon cheese (this is approximate-use what looks right).
Place remaining 6 patties on top of cheese/bacon topped patties and press edges to seal.
Grill or broil for 3-4 minutes per side until done. We like ours well done.
The last 2 minutes of cooking top patties with remaining bacon and cheese.
Serve on buns.
