Beer Can Bacon Burgers Recipe: I’m sure you have seen posts all over the web for the latest grilling fad, beer can burgers. My sister gave them a try and said they were delicious!
The recipe can be anything you like. They used hamburger, morels, peppers, onions, bacon and shredded cheese.
Get your charcoal grill ready. Moving hot coals to the outside of grill. You want to cook these burgers on indirect heat. To keep the bacon from pulling off when you turn your burgers you can secure it with a toothpick.
You will want your hamburger to be cold when forming. Using 2lb of hamburger (makes 4 burgers) split into 4 balls. Center a beer can with your burger ball and press down forming a bowl. Make sure that you have equal thickness all the way around the hamburger bowl. Using 2 pieces of bacon wrap all the way around the outside of bowl.
Take the burger bowl off of the beer can and start stuffing. On the bottom of bowl add shredded cheese, morel mushrooms, green peppers and onions. Top off the burger with more shredded cheese.
Place burgers in the center of the grill and cover. Cook for about 1 hour, rotating the burger at the halfway mark. Check at the 45 minute mark if you like them a little less done.
