This recipe produces a different burger. However If you are feeding Australians, remember to include beetroot and onion! A burger isn’t a burger without them.
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 175°C.
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.
