Grilled Bacon-Jarlsberg Cheeseburgers

Total Time

I usually prefer a hamburger straight up, but bacon inside and on top of the burger AND cheese was just too tempting!! I love Jarlsberg cheese, that mild "Swiss" cheese from Norway famous for it's creamy, nutty taste and easy melting. Prep time includes cooking the bacon. Found this in a grilling handout from Weber; you can use your own burger seasoning, or a different cheese for that matter.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 slices bacon
  • 1 12 lbs ground chuck
  • 1 tablespoon weber grill creations gourmet burger seasoning
  • 4 slices jarlsberg cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 slices tomatoes
  • 4 pieces lettuce
  • 12 red onion, sliced, separated in rings
  • other condiments, to taste


  1. Cook bacon strips in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Mix ground chuck, burger seasoning and 2 slices crumbled bacon in a medium bowl. Shape mixture into 4 burgers about 3/4" thick.
  3. Grill the burgers over direct high heat with the lid closed as much as possible, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once when the patties release easily from the grill grate.
  4. During the last couple of minutes of cooking, put 1 slice Jarlsberg on top of each patty to melt. At the same time, toast the hamburger buns, cut side down, on the grill.
  5. Assemble burgers on toasted buns by topping each with 2 slices bacon, rings of red onion (as desired), lettuce, tomato and other condiments of your choosing.
