Gouda to Know Ya Bacon Burgers

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 16 mins

Ok, so honestly these were pieced together from parts of several recipes...honorable mention goes to Kittencal (onion soup mix) and Rachael Ray (Gouda). I have always eaten my burgers medium rare.....but these are cooked med- well due to my suspicion of grocery store ground beef. Surprisingly they were very juicy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 13 lbs ground chuck (20/80 mix)
  • 0.5 (1 1/2 ounce) package dry onion soup mix, shake well distribute evenly
  • 2 -3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 -3 teaspoons steak sauce, I use A-1 Bold
  • 1 -2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced small
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 12 cup crouton, then crushed into crumbs
  • 12 cup smoked gouda cheese, grated
  • salt, go light the onion soup has some in it
  • pepper, to taste
  • 4 -6 slices bacon, fried crispy
  • 3 -4 kaiser rolls, bakery fresh


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl using a fork (except bacon and rolls).
  2. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  3. Form patties with a large indent in the middle of each one.
  4. Light your charcoal or gas grill.
  5. Allow meat to sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes prior to grilling.
  6. Grill direct heat 4 minutes each side then 4 minutes indirect each side to finish.
  7. Let rest a few minutes while toasting buns and preparing condiments.
  8. Top with crispy bacon and serve on toasted buns with your favorite condiments.

I'd expected to love these - the recipe looks great! Made exactly per the recipe. But there's so many seasonings going on, I couldn't taste the beef! Any one of them would have resulted in a delicious burger, but altogether it overwhelmed the meat. Sorry. made for Fall PAC 2009.

RecipeZaar is a great place for getting recipe ideas and this one is a perfect example. The flavor of the burgers are wonderfully bold. I used the packaged soup mix & regular gouda since that is what we had on hand. Made as directed otherwise. We topped the burgers with additional gouda for garnish. A great burger recipe, thanks for sharing your creation. :)
