This recipe is more of a “how to” than an original recipe. However the end result is definitely worth it, and you can decide the fillings for the burger. If you are feeding Australians, remember to include beetroot and onion!
Combine cheese, bacon pieces, and BBQ sauce in a bowl. Stir together and refrigerate.
Season the ground beef with salt and pepper in a large bowl, and mix in with your hands to ensure even mix.
Roll ground beef into tennis ball size and place on a parchment lined baking tray.
Using a clean, empty soft drink can, press the can into the ball of beef to create a deep bowl. Make sure to smooth out any cracks.
Remove the cheese mixture from the refrigerator and fill the bowls and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Preheat the grill to 175C.
Cook burger bowls over indirect heat for 25-30 minutes.
Place lettuce on an opened bun, and place the cooked bowl on top of it and another piece of lettuce on top and then close the burger bun and serve.
