If there’s one thing Americans love during the summer, it’s a big, fat, juicy hamburger! The only things that make a hamburger even more appealing is the perfectly melted slice of cheese and crispy bacon sitting on top. I dare you to disagree! I was challenged with recreating one of Kraft’s Great American Cheeseburger Recipes and I have to admit, it wasn’t the worst challenge I’ve ever accepted!
I don’t know about you, but when I think “cheeseburger,” I think Kraft Singles.
Even though this Inside out Bacon Cheeseburger recipe called for a slice of Kraft Singles IN the burger…I had to add an extra slice on top to a few of the burgers because hello, cheese is delicious!
What is your favorite burger recipe? Do you like them grilled with a simple slice of cheese, or piled high with fresh tomatoes, lettuce, onions and maybe a pickle too?
There are so many different ways to enjoy the Great American Cheeseburger, and Kraft wants to help you step up your grilling game with a few ideas!
There are four Kraft Rockin’ Burger Recipes:
I decided to go with the Inside-Out Bacon Cheeseburger. With crispy bacon, melty cheese, Ranch dressing and a double thick hamburger patty, how could I resist?
The Inside-Out Cheeseburger Recipe
1 lb. ground beef
3 Tbsp. KRAFT Classic Ranch Dressing, divided
4 slices cooked OSCAR MAYER Bacon, crumbled
2 KRAFT Singles, cut into quarters
4 hamburger buns, toasted
4 lettuce leaves
2 tomatoes, cut into 4 slices each
Mix the ground beef and 2 Tbsp. dressing; shape into 8 thin patties. Combine remaining dressing and bacon. Spoon onto centers of 4 patties; top with Singles quarters and remaining patties. Pinch edges together to seal.
Grill or cook in the pan for 7 to 9 minutes on each side or until burgers are done (160°F).
Fill your buns with lettuce, burgers and tomatoes, or whatever you desire! Adding vegetables to your cheeseburgers is a great way to increase your servings of vegetables for the day, and of course it makes your cheeseburgers more tasty too!
