What do I need to make this Melt-in-the-middle Bacon Cheese Burgers recipe?

To make these burgers you will need a food processor and a non stick frying pan.

If you don’t have a food processor, how about investing in this hand blender? It is the same one we used to make these burgers as it has a food processor attachment. You can pick one up on Amazon here.

A decent sized non-stick frying pan is a great investment as it reduces the need for oil in your cooking. This one over at Amazon is a great starter pan for your kitchen!

Step 2

Add your lean beef mince (5% fat) and the salt, pepper, garlic powder, mustard powder, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 beef stock cube, soy sauce and the egg. Give it a whizz until all the ingredients are well mixed.

Step 3

Grab a big handful of the mixture and begin to shape it around a babybel cheese. Make sure there are no cracks or gaps, you don’t want all that lovely cheese to escape!

Step 4

Heat a large non-stick frying pan and spray liberally with low calorie cooking spray. Add your burgers and cook gently – you want them to be cooked through without being burnt on the outside. Alternatively crack out the BBQ on and get grilling!

Step 6

  1. I use a burger press to make these.
    Layer of mince at the bottom, babybelxin the middle and then layer mince over the top and sices.
    Perfect burger and no escaping meltiness 🖒

  2. Hi there, is it possible to cook these in the oven or grill them in the oven? If so how long do you reckon? 😊

    1. Hi Josephine
      Cooking them in a pan keeps the burgers moist, but cooking in the oven will dry them out. Stick to the pan if you can!

      1. I made these tonight and cooked them in the oven, they were delicious.
        Will definitely be making these again as my family really enjoyed them too x

        1. These were a hit with my family. So easy yet so tasty. Will be a regular with my household. Thank you pinch of nom. Xx

  3. Just finished eating these. Didn’t use the cheese, Just made them as burgers. I can honestly say they were the tastiest burgers I have tasted. Scrumptious.
    .Thank you for the recipe, it’s a keeper.

  4. Currently cooking one of these in the oven 🍔 I cook them for about 25 mins on 190 degrees & have never had any issues cooking that way, love your recipes ladies, thank you so much for inspiring myself & many others 👏🏻
