Burger Bombs

If you’re a lover of hamburgers, you’re going to enjoy this twist by creating the ultimate Burger Bombs that are sure to please!

Sometimes it’s fun to take a traditional recipe and put a new spin on it. These Burger Bombs are going to be your new family favorite. They are packed full of flavor and so we opt to eat them without a bun, which is a win if you like Keto-friendly diets!

You can get really creative when it comes to the style of Burger Bomb you want to make. Today we made a Pizza Burger Bomb and Philly Cheesesteak Burger Bomb.

Heres what you will need to make them:

  • Hamburger
  • Mozzarella Cheese – shredded
  • Provolone Cheese – sliced
  • Bacon
  • Pepperoni
  • Cheese Sauce
  • Diced Green Peppers
  • Mushrooms
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Mushrooms
  • Diced Red Peppers
  • Olives
  • Onions

To season the meat, we used A1 sauce, garlic powder, onion powder and salt & pepper.

Once you get all of your seasonings mixed in with your hamburger, you’re going to want to create large “meatballs”. These are about 3-4 inches in diameter. Think about how big it would be if it was pressed thin like a hamburger. That’s what you want.

Now, the hubby was enjoying a drink or two while cooking with his buddy and so they used a beer can (washed and dried) to create the tunnel that you’re going to put all the other flavored goodies into.

You can see that it is also wrapped in bacon. This is going to help keep the burger together and not fall apart too much.

To help secure it a little more, you can use some bakers twine to wrap about the bacon.

Now it’s time to fill it up with goodies!

This particular one is the Philly style Burger Bomb.

First we added some onions and green peppers.

For the taco ones, we added shredded mozzarella cheese and red peppers.

Add some mushrooms to the green pepper ones and top with some salt and pepper.

The top of the taco ones had some provolone cheese, pepperoni, black olives and more shredded mozzarella.

To finish the Philly ones, we topped with some cheese sauce and a slice of provolone cheese.

Remember, be very creative when it comes to creating your own Burger Bombs. We made two different kinds but they were all styled and layered a little different.

The one thing that I want you to do, is be creative and enjoy the process! Create something new that you might not have otherwise.

Since these were pretty heavy and we didn’t want them to fall apart, we started them on cedar planks while we were grilling and then we moved them to the rack after they were held together a bit.

Check it out!

These can be a bit time consuming but they are so much fun to make. You could make the burgers ahead of time and have your friends and family fill it with their own goodies to create their own unique Burger Bombs.
