4th of July Homemade Burger Recipe

Today I would like to share with you how to make homemade burgers perfect for a 4th of July BBQ.


  • 1 1/2 lbs of chuck steak
  • 3 slices of bacon
  • 1/4 sweet onion, sliced
  • 3 oz of gorgonzola cheese, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Ciabatta bread

Toppings: tomato slices, avocado slices, American cheese, ketchup, mayonnaise/h3>
burger meat

Pre-heat the BBQ to 450-500 degrees. To make your homemade burger patty, begin by cutting the steak into a few slices that are small enough to fit into the meat grinder. Put the slices into the meat grinder. Add the sliced 1/4 onion into the grinder followed by the bacon strips.

Add the chopped gorgonzola cheese to the meat mix. Add salt and pepper for flavor. Begin mixing the meat and cheese mixture by hand to incorporate all ingredients. Grab a palm sized amount, roll into a ball, and then flatten out.

Place the burger patties onto the BBQ and grill for 3 minutes on each side. If you would like your bread toasted, add each slice to the BBQ on the top rack for 2 minutes. Add cheese to the burger for only 1 minute.

Enjoy and have a nice 4th of July weekend!
