Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Burgers

Valeree Dunbar


Have you ever put lots of toppings on a burger and find it frustrating when they fall off. Well this recipe will cure that problem. These inside out stuffed burgers mix the toppings right into the meat. You'll get the taste of smokey flavored turkey bacon, cheddar, and portabella mushrooms in every bite. So simple, who knew!!! OMG, wouldn't this make a great meatloaf recipe too!
