Directions

  1. Combine sirloin and chuck together in a large bowl. Shape meat into 12 thin patties, slightly larger than the hamburger bun.

  2. Using a 3-4 inch circle cookie cutter, cut out circles from the 12 slices of cheese. Combine the bacon bits with the whipped cream cheese. Divide cream cheese mixture and place on six cheese circles. Top each with a second circle. Gently push down to sandwich cheese. Place filled cheese circles on top of six burger patties. Place second burger patty on top of each. Press down edges to seal.

  3. Combine salt, pepper and garlic powder. Sprinkle on both sides of burgers. Refrigerate burger patties for 30 minutes before grilling.

  4. Preheat grill to high heat. Place burgers on hot grill. Sear outside of burgers, about 2-3 minutes per side. Reduce temperature to medium and continue cooking until the desired doneness is achieved. Remove burgers and let rest.

  5. Brush cut side of buns with melted butter. Place buns, cut side down on grill to toast. Grill until grill marks appear, about 3 minutes.

  6. To assemble, place patty on bottom bun, Top with tomato, onion, and lettuce. Finish with your desired condiments.
