Do like to grill? May is National Burger Month and Tillamook is celebrating with an All-Natural Burger Grillabration here in Texas. Colby, my husband, took on the challenge and decided to throw together a new burger for us all to try.

BBQ Infused Bacon Burger Recipe

Who does not love bacon on their burger? This is one of the best ways to get our 7 year old to eat a burger. She loves bacon and will eat the burger for that reason alone sometimes. So, Colby began to through around some ideas and decided to make a BBQ Infused Bacon Burger recipe. The BBQ sauce would give it just the right amount of juicy seasoning, and the bacon would add a crunchy layer of goodness.

BBQ Burger Ingredients


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup BBQ sauce
  • 8 bacon strips
  • 1 ½ tsp minced onions
  • Tillamook Sliced Medium Cheddar Cheese
  • Kaiser rolls
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Onion

BBQ Bacon Burger


  1. Cook bacon and dice 4 slices into small pieces and set aside. Other 4 slices used for garnishing top of burger.
  2. Combine mayonnaise and BBQ sauce in a small bowl. Add bacon bits and minced onions to mayonnaise/BBQ mixture. Add ground beef and mix well.
  3. Shape ground beef mixture into hamburger patties
  4. Grill burgers until juices run clear… or desired doneness.
  5. Top with Tillamook cheddar cheese and cover until cheese in melted.
  6. Garnish with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and bacon as you like.
  7. Spread preferred condiment over kaiser roll and serve with your favorite side.

  1. Can you say drool!!! All I did was read the title of this post and am hungry. Then I kept reading to find out how to create this deliciousness. Tillamook is our cheese of choice and luckily we can pick up a block at our local Costco. I cannot wait to see their yogurts in our grocery stores though. MMmmm!

  5. We don’t have Tillamook Ice Cream here. 🙁 Apparently it’s a competitive market here in Texas with another brand.

  6. It looks totally delicious! Right now I am enjoying burgers more than normal (being pregnant!) I will have to try out your recipe!
