This one’s almost too indulgent to finish, but too good to stop eating. Cheese-stuffed ground beef is surrounded by cheddar cheese and a bacon weave 8-10 strips strong. The bacon-wrapped patty is pan-seared, then served in a warm french fry waffle “bun.” Finish with your favorite condiments and a nap–you’ll need it.

What You'll Need

  • 8-10 bacon strips
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 lb. Ground beef
  • Large order fast food french fries
  • Lots of cheese (cheddar, velveeta, american)

  • Optional Toppings: Mayo, Ketchup, lettuce, tomato

How to Make It

  2. Lay 4 pieces of bacon on working surface, then 4 the other way. Make bacon weave. Place a piece of cheese on top of bacon weave, then put burger onto cheese. Place another piece of cheese on top of the burger, and encase in bacon weave.

  3. Cook bacon burger on skillet until cooked through and cheese is melty.

  4. Meanwhile, coarsely break up fries and in a bowl, toss with whisked eggs and shredded cheese.

  1. Cook fries mixture in a waffle iron until crispy.
