Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes


1 lb. raw extra-lean ground beef (at least 95% lean)

3 tbsp. precooked crumbled bacon

2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/8 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. black pepper

1/4 cup reduced-fat/light cream cheese, divided


In a large bowl, combine beef, bacon, Worcestershire sauce, and seasonings. Mix until uniform. Divide into 4 portions.

Divide 1 portion in half, and flatten each half into a thin patty. Place 1 tbsp. of cream cheese on the center of 1 patty. Top with the other patty, and squeeze the edges to seal, forming one stuffed patty. Repeat to make 3 more stuffed patties.

Bring a grill pan (or large skillet) sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Working in batches as needed, cook for 4–6 minutes per side, until cooked to your preference.


Outdoor Grilling Alternative: Grill burger patties over high heat for 2–4 minutes per side.

HG FYI: This recipe’s gluten free! Just check your Worcestershire sauce, as some brands contain gluten.
