Why put the bacon, onions and cheese on top of the burger when they fit perfectly inside? Every bite of this inside-out burger bursts with flavor.


Ground chuck 2 Pound
Worcestershire sauce 3 Tablespoon
Salt 2 Teaspoon
Pepper 2 Teaspoon
Bacon 1/4 Pound , chopped
Shallots 2 , thinly sliced
Swiss cheese 8 Ounce , shredded
Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
Kaiser buns 4 , split and toasted


Preheat the grill to high.

In a large bowl add the ground chuck, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper; combine all ingredients together, making sure not to work the meat too much. Divide meat into 8 equal sections and create 4-inch patties.

In a pan over medium-high heat, add in the bacon and cook until rendered. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Add the shallots directly into the pan and cook until translucent and fragrant.

Equally divide the bacon, shallots and cheese between 4 patties. Add a patty over the top of your bacon, onion and cheese mixture and gently seal the edges; repeat for the remaining patties. Lightly oil the outside of the patties and place on the grill. Cook on one side for 4 minutes over direct heat, then flip and cook for an additional 4 minutes. Transfer the patties to an indirect heat and allow for them to cook for an additional 7-10 minutes, or until it reaches desired doneness.

Remove from the grill, toast the buns and serve with your favorite condiments. Enjoy!
