Yields: 12 servings
Prep Time: 0 hours 10 mins
Total Time: 0 hours 40 mins
- 2 lb. lean ground beef
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 8 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
- 2 1/2 c. shredded cheddar
- Chopped chives, for serving
- Ranch dressing, for serving
- Bread and butter pickles, for serving
Preheat oven to 400. In a medium bowl, toss the bacon with the cheddar cheese.
Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Form the beef into 4 bowls over four of the inverted muffin tins. Season each burger bowl with salt and pepper. Add a small handful of beef to each muffin tin well then press up the sides to create a cup. Divide the bacon and cheese mixture evenly among the cups.
Bake until beef is cooked through and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Let cool slightly.
Using an offset spatula, release hamburger bowls from muffin tins. Drizzle with ranch dressing, sprinkle with chives, and serve with pickles.
