Recipe IngredientsMakes 3 burgers, about ¾ lbs each
- Fogo Super Premium Lump Charcoal
- About 2lbs ground beef 80/20 mix
- Cheddar cheese, sliced
- 3 Eggs
- 6 Slices Bacon
- 6 Slices Breakfast Ham (fully cooked)
- Worcestershire sauce
- Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, Ketchup, Mustard
Fry 6 slices of bacon and set aside.
Place ground beef into a mixing bowl and sprinkle in some pepper, salt, and 2 tbsp of worcestershire sauce.
Mix with hands.
Divide the meat into 6 sections and form into patties.
Put bacon and a few slices of cheddar on one side of the patty.
Then take another patty and put it on top and seal the edges by pressing it together. You will have 3 stuffed burgers when finished.
Heat up grill to about 350 degrees with direct heat over Fogo Charcoal. Grill grates are used in the video to get really nice looking grill marks and also reduces flare ups since the juices are caught in the grates. The burger should not stick to the grates. If it sticks, it just needs more time to cook and it will release from the grates when it is ready to spin or flip. It works best to rotate 90 degrees once so you get good grill marks, then flip and rotate after a few minutes. Monitor the internal temperature and remove from the grill when the temperature is 155 degrees*. Be sure to measure the temperature of the meat and not the middle where the cheese and bacon are.
Remove burgers and put buns and ham on the grill to heat it up for a few minutes.
Fry 3 eggs sunny side up and set aside. Assemble burger with ham on top of the patty and then the sunny side up egg on top of that. When sliced, the egg should be runny and give the burger a delicious, silky richness. Top with your favorite toppings like lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup, mustard, and/or mayo.
*155 degrees is the USDA safe internal temperature for ground beef. Some people cook their burgers less, but with the burger stuffed with cheese and bacon, this burger will still be juicy when cooked correctly.
