What's better than bacon on burgers? Bacon-wrapped burgers with mushrooms stuffed in the center. We created the juiciest burger of all with a simple concoction of ground chuck, sautéed mushrooms, bacon, and best of all, our homemade mustard BBQ sauce. We started with ground chuck, then packed seasoned, sautéed mushrooms in the center, and lined bacon around the burger. If you're not a mushroom lover, place ice cubes in the center to keep it moist. After we placed the burgers on the grill, we coated them a few times with our homemade mustard BBQ sauce to add additional moisture. When the grilling is done, it's time to build a burger tower. We kept our stack classic, with a brioche bun, sliced tomatoes, a bed of lettuce, and a couple rings of red onion. These flavorful bacon-wrapped burgers are ready to be devoured. Pair these burgers with essential BBQ sides such as Classic Baked Macaroni and Cheese and cole slaw. Impress your guests at your next backyard BBQ or neighborhood gathering by grilling up these juicy BBQ bacon burgers.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Arrange bacon on a paper towel-lined microwave-safe plate; cover with a paper towel. Microwave bacon at HIGH 2 minutes or until edges begin to crinkle and bacon is partially cooked.

  • Sauté mushrooms and onion in hot oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat 4 to 5 minutes or until tender and liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat, and stir in 2 Tbsp. barbecue sauce.

  • Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high). Shape ground beef into 8 (5-inch) thin patties. Place 2 Tbsp. mushroom mixture in center of each of 4 patties. Top with remaining patties, pressing edges to seal. Shape into 4-inch patties. Wrap sides of each patty with 2 bacon slices, overlapping ends of each slice. Secure bacon using wooden picks. Sprinkle patties with salt. Cover and chill 10 minutes.

  • Grill patties, covered with grill lid, over 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat 5 to 6 minutes on 1 side. Turn and baste with half of remaining barbecue sauce. Grill 5 to 6 minutes or until beef is no longer pink in center. Turn and baste with remaining barbecue sauce. Remove from grill, and let stand 5 minutes. Remove wooden picks. Serve burgers on buns, and top with remaining mushroom mixture.
