Bacon Cheeseburger Egg Rolls

One time someone asked me what my favorite food is and without hesitation I replied "bacon cheeseburgers". Judging by their reaction, that's not a normal reply. But it's true. I really do love bacon cheeseburgers. I tend to order them everywhere when I go out to dinner. Don't get me wrong, I love trying new things, and I'll eat everything and anything at least once, but there's just something so comforting about beef and pork joined together by cheese. I know Tucker Max hopes they serve beer in hell, and since I'm a glutton, I hope it comes with a bacon cheeseburger. 

Do you guys remember these? I had dreams about them, they looked so good. I love food that comes wrapped up or in transportable form. So convenient. I tweaked the idea just a tad and made something so delicious my eyes rolled. I'm trying to build suspense here, so I'm going to post the pictures in steps. 

I've recently become obsessed with cooking bacon in the oven. Yes, I am pouring the bacon grease into a pot, it has flavor I don't want to waste. 

All my components. I just cooked the beef with some onion in the bacon grease (get over it). 

Oh, yes, I did.


I only had 3 slices of bacon left and that was only enough for 4 egg rolls. So the remaining 2 were rolled up with extra cheese. Incredible. Perfect for an appetizer or movie night when you want a snack that doesn't require two hands or even looking at. Just pick up and eat!!! Now if you excuse me, I need to go throw away my bikinis and buy a muumuu. 


  1. You need to open Varta's (Fat Azz) Restaurant!

  2. Lol here here Bear and open a gym right next to it! :D

  3. Looks yummy! I had pulled pork BBQ egg rolls a couple of weeks ago, and they were tasty :)

  4. So I made these and they turned out absolutely amazing. The one thing I did differently though was add ketchup and mustard to the beef as a sauce. Definitely a great choice. Thank you for the recipe.

  5. I'm glad you liked it! Thanks for the tip and letting me know how it worked out!
