Classic Bacon Cheeseburger

Makes 6 Burgers.


  • For the Patties:
  • 1 lb medium ground beef
  • ½ cup minced onion
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 tsp Montreal steak spice
  • For the toppings:
  • 6 slices of Glasgow Glen Gouda with mustard seeds
  • 12 pieces cooked double-smoked bacon
  • Your favorite ketchup
  • 6 brioche buns or other crusty white rolls
  • 1 tbsp warm butter brushed onto the cut side of the bun


  • To make the patties, combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl until just barely mixed. Form into 6 x ½ inch patties and refrigerate for at least one hour.
  • Preheat one side of your grill at 450F for at least 10 minutes. Place the patties on the hot grill and cook for 5 minutes on one side, then flip and cook another 4 minutes. Top with cheese, then remove to a cooler side of the grill.
  • Reduce heat to 350F and grill buns until golden brown and crispy. Warm the bacon on the grill while the buns are toasting. Build your burgers as desired and enjoy!
