– 8 slices of thick-cut bacon
– 4 hot dog buns
– 1 lb ground beef
– Your favorite hamburger seasoning
– 4 slices of Cheddar cheese
– 4 tbsp butter
– Your favorite condiments for toppings
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a large skillet, cook the bacon until it’s browned and crisp on both sides. Make sure to flip it over once it starts to brown.
Step 2: Slice each hot dog bun in half, creating two boat-like pieces per bun.
Step 3: In a medium bowl, mix ½ a teaspoon of your favorite hamburger seasoning with the ground beef. Divide the beef into four equal parts. Shape each into a patty.
Step 4: Grease a baking sheet with the butter, then place your four patties on the sheet. Bake the patties for about 12 minutes, or until they are cooked to your desired doneness.
Step 5: Once the patties are done, place a slice of cheese on top of each one, and set them aside.
Step 6: Take two of the hot dog bun halves, top each of them with a patty and a slice of bacon. Then top the patty with the other bun half. Repeat these steps with the remaining two buns and patties.
Step 7: Place the Stuffed Bacon Cheeseburger Boats on the greased baking sheet, and bake in the oven for five minutes.
Step 8: Serve your Stuffed Bacon Cheeseburger Boats with your favorite condiments or toppings.
