Bacon and Cheddar Stuffed Burgers with Cole Slaw and Cole's Corn

This was a perfect dinner. I found the burger recipe on Plays With Butter blog. This recipe is a keeper! 
These burgers got rave reviews from both sides of the table.

The Cole Slaw was made with cabbage, green and purple, from a co-worker's garden. Sally loaded me up with all sorts of veggies, tomatoes, spaghetti and butternut squash and this cabbage.

The corn was from Cole's and grilled in the husks. Click here if you missed that post!

Here is the recipe for the burgers. This makes 4 burgers.

5 slices bacon
1 pound 85% lean ground beef
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Par cook the bacon: Add the bacon to a skillet over medium heat (on the stove, not the grill). Cook 2-3 minutes per side until the bacon begins to render, but is not totally crispy. The goal is to par-cook the bacon since it’ll finish cooking in the stuffed burger patties. 

I used the air fryer for the bacon, 370˚ for about 7 minutes, flipped, and cook for another 3 minutes.

Remove from the heat. Once cool enough to handle, finely chop into small pieces.

Form the bacon cheddar stuffed burger patties: 
Add the chopped bacon to a bowl with the ground beef, shredded cheddar, Worcestershire, & ground black pepper. Using your hands, combine the mixture until the bacon and cheddar are evenly dispersed. Be careful not to overmix. Form into 4 equally sized burger patties.
At this point Chris takes over on the grill.
The cats and I sit back and wait for dinner!
