Ingredients

  • 1
    tablespoon butter, melted
  • 6
    regular-size burger buns, split
  • 3
    slices thick-cut bacon, chopped
  • 1
    lb ground beef
  • 1/2
    cup diced yellow onion
  • 1/2
    teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 4
    tablespoons ketchup
  • 6
    slices American cheese, each cut in four pieces
  • 1
    teaspoon sesame seed
  • 2
    tablespoons dill pickle relish
  • Yellow mustard, if desired
  • Sriracha sauce, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Brush 12 regular-size muffin cups with melted butter. Press half of a bun, cut side up, into each muffin cup, pressing to 1/4-inch thick; set aside.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp; with slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel-lined plate to drain. Pour off and discard all but 1 tablespoon drippings. Add beef, onion and seasoned salt to drippings in skillet; heat to medium-high heat. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is brown and cooked through; drain.
  • 3
    Divide mixture evenly among muffin cups. Gently press mixture down into cups. Top each with 1 teaspoon ketchup. Divide cheese, then sesame seed among muffin cups.
  • 4
    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until cheese is melted. Immediately top with cooked bacon, followed by relish and mustard or Sriracha sauce, as desired.

  • Make sure to thoroughly press the bread into the cups before adding filling, to make sure there is room for all the burger toppings as well.
  • Make it your own! Instead of mustard or Sriracha, use barbecue sauce. And instead of American, use your favorite cheese.
