These mouth-watering beef and bacon burgers are cooked sous vide, then finished on the grill for the ultimate summer barbecue favourite.



  • 4 oz. cheddar cheese block
  • 1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 2 thick slices double-smoked bacon, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp steak seasoning
  • 4 burger buns, split and toasted
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 4 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 leaves lettuce
  • 4 thick slices tomato
  • 4 round red onion slices
  • 16 slices bread-and-butter pickles


  1. Cut Cheddar cheese block into 4 large cubes; set aside. Mix together beef, bacon and steak seasoning; divide into 4 portions. Roll each portion into ball; press cheese cube into each burger, wrapping the meat around it, to completely enclose the cheese. Shape each portion into 3/4-inch thick patties.
  2. Individually seal burgers using FoodSaver® FM5000 System according to appliance guidelines. Fill cooking pot with water. Add sous-vide machine; set to 160˚F for well-done burgers. Lower vacuumed bag into heated water, weighing down to submerge, if necessary. Set timer to 40 minutes or up to 3 1/2 hours.
  3. Carefully remove bag from water; let stand for 5 minutes before opening and removing burgers.
  4. Preheat grill to high heat; grease grate well. Grill burgers for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until well marked and heated through.
  5. Assemble burgers in buns with mayonnaise, barbecue sauce, mustard, lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles.


  • Substitute provolone, Gouda or Gruyère for Cheddar cheese.
  • As a variation, top burgers with your favorite toppings.
