Rated 4 out of 5 by from These are so flavorful! I love the flavor of the Smokey BB Cheese Ball and new it would be great in the burgers. Add some bacon, sure! It was packed full of goodness. I followed the recipe as directed, however next time I will precook the bacon slightly or wrap the burger in the bacon so it cooks through and provides more of that delicious bacon flavor we all love.
