I made a beast of burger last night and it was FANTASTIC!!!!! You will not regret eating this burger. It was so much of a beast that I didn’t even make any sides to go with it. It has a major eruption of flavor that will make you burst with happiness.
I don’t measure my spices or cheeses. I just add as much as I think will make me satisfied.
For this Volcano Burger, I only made two but could of made 3. Instead I used the extra meat to make Thomas a small burger and Chad one to take with him for lunch tomorrow.

- 1 LB ground beef
- 1 egg
- 2 oz of pork rinds
- dash of garlic powder
- dash of onion powder
- dash of pink salt https://amzn.to/2HNAQjK
- dash of pepper
- cream cheese (as much as you want)
- mozzarella cheese (as much as you want)
- parmesan cheese (as much as you want)
- 4 slices of crispy bacon
- bell pepper (as much as you want)
- mushrooms (as much as you want)
- avocado (as much as you want)
- Fry the bacon (I like mine Crispy!).
- I added peppers and mushrooms to the same pan to soften them up.
- Crush up the pork rinds. You can use a rolling pin
- or toddler
- Mix beef, pork rinds, egg, garlic powder, onion powder, pink salt, and pepper together. I used my hands.
- Make 2 large balls of meat, there’s enough to make 3. Place them in an oven safe dish lined with aluminum (easier clean up)
- I found a 2 inch diameter jar and smushed it down into the balls of meat to form a little bowl.
- Take a pinch of cream cheese and line the inside of “bowl” of meat.
- Add the mushrooms and peppers.
- Top with mozzarella cheese, bacon and parmesan cheese.
- Place in oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees (my oven is old so this just a guideline)
- Add some avocado and eat!
- If you’re feeling frisky you can take some Mayo mixed with garlic powder and a little water, then drizzle it over your Volcano Burger! Sometimes I’ll also add a dab of beef bouillon powder to spice up the mayo if I’m really feelin it.
One day I hope Thomas can enjoy the explosiveness of the volcano burger, until then he gets his toddler dinners.
Here are the links to some products that I love and used for my volcano burger:
I love my Calphalon pans! My mother in-law got them for me for Christmas and I use them almost everyday. They are are so great that she requested a set for her birthday.
I use the Kirkland brand of pink salt.
