  • 6 strips Bacon, cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 cup Onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup Sweet peppers, diced
  • 1 ea. Jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup Shredded mild cheddar cheese, divided

  • 1 1/4 lbs. Ground sirloin
  • 1 Tbsp. Hamburger seasoning
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Barbecue sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Steak sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. Ranch dressing



In an 8" NUCU skillet or Sauté pan, fry bacon over medium heat until browned. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside. Remove remaining grease from pan, leaving about 1 tablespoon.


Add onion to pan and sauté over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Add peppers and sauté an additional 10 minutes, stirring often. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside until cooled.


For Burger Bowls, combine ground sirloin seasoning, 1 tablespoon of barbecue sauce and steak sauce. Mix meat mixture with your hands and form mixture into 4 balls. Press each ball into a bowl shape with your fingers and place on a small NUCU baking sheet


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine reserved bacon, pepper mixture, 1/2 cup of each cheese. Stir in tomato slices.


Spoon mixture evenly into the formed burger bowls. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until the burger bowls are cooked through. Remove from oven and top each with remaining cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until melted. Serve drizzled with ranch dressing.
