BBQ Bacon Burger
Disclosure: I received a Burger Kit from Tillamook for the sole purpose of this post. No other compensation was given. All opinions are 100% my own.

Do like to grill? May is National Burger Month and Tillamook is celebrating with an All-Natural Burger Grillabration here in Texas. Colby, my husband, took on the challenge and decided to throw together a new burger for us all to try.

BBQ Infused Bacon Burger Recipe

Who does not love bacon on their burger? This is one of the best ways to get our 7 year old to eat a burger. She loves bacon and will eat the burger for that reason alone sometimes.

So, Colby began to through around some ideas and decided to make a BBQ Infused Bacon Burger recipe.

The BBQ sauce would give it just the right amount of juicy seasoning, and the bacon would add a crunchy layer of goodness.

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup BBQ sauce
  • 8 bacon strips
  • 1 ½ tsp minced onions
  • Tillamook Sliced Medium Cheddar Cheese
  • Kaiser rolls

  • Tomato
  • Onion

Tillamook Cheese

Tillamook Medium Cheddar is both rich and creamy. Each batch is aged naturally for at least 60 days and made from the same recipe for over a hundred years.

Not to mention, it is hormone free and pre-sliced. It really is no wonder that it won World’s Best Medium Cheddar.

Which cheese tops your favorite burger? Cheddar? Colby Jack? Pepper Jack?
