Stufz Burger stuffed with Center Cut Bacon and Havarti Cheese

Making a Bacon and Havarti Stufz burger (or any Stufz burger, for that matter) is quite simple.  This video shows you how to do it!

I chose to use center cut bacon because has less fat than the regular stuff.  This gives the burger a cleaner taste and makes the filling less runny.  Havarti is a great melting cheese and it has solid flavor to add to the burger.

Ingredients for 2 burgers:

  • 1 pound of ground beef, turkey, chicken, or pork
  • 4-6 rashers of center cut bacon, cooked, drained, and chopped
  • shredded Havarti cheese
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


Charcoal Grill set up with a 2 zone fire

Place all the coals on one side of your grill. Now you have a hot zone and a safe zone.

Grilling Instructions:

  • Be sure your grill grate is clean and well oiled.
  • Place your Stufz burgers on your grill over the hot zone.  Cover and sear for 4 minutes.
  • Flip burgers over and sear the other side for 4 minutes.
  • Move your Stufz burgers to the safe zone until they are cooked through — Probably 8-10 minutes.
  • Let your burgers rest for a minute or two before serving.

Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’s:

  • If you have issues with your burgers splitting open, you could add an egg to the ground beef.
  • You could also add some breadcrumbs as a filler.  Flavored breadcrumbs work well to add extra flavor.
