Nothing beats a terrific burger. It is the easiest & most delicious food to cook while you are camping because it is packed full of carbs and meat. Add some cheese & bacon to the top and you are in burger heaven. The biggest problem with burgers is that you have to cook a bunch of them all at the same time. This can be a pain at the RV site because some grills are not large enough to fit everything. Plus, who wants to waste time cooking burgers when you are super hungry from a day adventuring. Here is the solution: Mega Bacon Cheeseburger!

Mega Bacon Cheeseburger
Try a massive cheeseburger made with a loaf of bread as a bun! Savory and fun for the whole family.
- 2 lbs of Ground Beef
- 2 Fresh Eggs
- 1 Italian Round Bread
- 10 slices of Colby Jack Cheese
- 10 slices of Center Cut Bacon
- 3 tbsp of Mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp of Chipotle Powder
- 2 tbsp of Chili Powder
- 1 tbsp of Smoked Paprika
- 1 tbsp of Sea Salt
- 1 tbsp of Cinnamon
- 1 tbsp of Cumin
- 1/2 tbsp of Ground Black Pepper
- 1 tbsp of Butter
In a mixing bowl, add all the ground beef, eggs, chipotle powder, chili powder, smoked paprika, sea salt, cinnamon, cumin & ground black pepper. Mix the beef thoroughly.
Next, use half of the beef to make 1/2 inch thick burger patty. Make sure to round out the edges and have no cracks in the patty. Do this to the other half of the ground beef till you have equal size patties.
Using a fire starter, build your fire and let burn until it coals (about 15-20 minutes).
Once fire has reached a nice medium temperature, add a cast iron pan to the grill and place you bacon on it. Cook the bacon to its desired temperature, then pull off and let rest.
Using a spatula, place both burger patties over the hot part of the grill. Let cook for 4-5 minutes per side. Make sure to add cheese to patties 2-3 minutes before being done in order for it to melt. ***PS: Beware of flare ups from the burger grease! Also, use two spatulas to flip the burger. This will help them from breaking apart.
Once burgers are done, pull them off and let rest. Slice the bread in two, add butter and place on grill for 1 minute to crust up.
Once everything is complete, lather bread with mayo on both pieces then add burgers topped with bacon. Use a wooden skewer through burger to keep in place if necessary.
Cut burger into 4 pieces, serve & enjoy!
Equipment Needed: Fire pit/grill, cast iron skillet, spatula, wood, and fire starters.
