Cheesy Bacon Burger Bombs

They say 3rd time is the charm but I nailed this recipe the 2nd time I tried it. These cheesy bacon burger bombs are a melt-in-your-mouth flavor explosion. I’m pretty sure I don’t need to sell you on these so I’ll get right to it, and tell you just how to make these bad boys for your next dinner. 

Edited to Add: I forgot to mention what kind of cheese, or how much to use! Thanks Dan from for pointing it out! I’m still new to the food blogging world haha. I used a brick of marble cheese and cut 3 thick slices. Then I cut each slice into 4 cubes. 1lb of ground beef makes approx 12 burger bombs but you can adjust according to how many you yield.


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • ½lb bacon
  • 1 small onion (or half large onion)
  • ½c bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • ½tsp garlic powder
  • dash of salt and pepper (optional)


1. Cut bacon and onion into small (bacon bit sized) pieces, then place in a pan over medium heat.

2. Place remainder of ingredients in a large mixing bowl and with your fingers, mix it up! Add bacon and onions when they’re finished cooking and mix some more.

3. Roll the mix into balls, a little larger than a meatball.

4. Using your finger, make a hole in the “meatball” and stick the cheese in it, then close the hole by gently rolling the ball again.

5. Place on a baking pan and cook for 25 minutes at 350°

6. Serve with ANYTHING because they’re awesome and versatile.

Pin it!
