Bacon Cheeseburger Lasagna combines three favorite foods in an unexpectedly delicious way!

Bacon Cheeseburger Lasagna

Hi everyone. It’s Jack, and I’m sharing today’s incredibly delicious recipe…a Bacon Cheeseburger Lasagna!

I know – this recipe might sound a little strange. But after just one bite, Martha and I were both saying, “Mmmmm!” and I think you will say it too.

What’s not to love: bacon, cheeseburger, lasagna? Three favorite foods combined into one hearty comfort food meal – and dare I say, it’s so good, you may never want to go back to making a classic lasagna ever again? (My Italian ancestors are probably turning over in their grave hearing me say that – but it’s true.)

How do you make Bacon Cheeseburger Lasagna?

It’s a basic lasagna recipe – lasagna noodles, with a creamy ricotta and tomato sauce filling. But we scaled way back on the Italian flavors you’d normally find in lasagna.

Then, we bumped up all of the flavors you’d expect in a bacon cheeseburger: zesty ground beef, crumbled bacon, and we even added in a little ketchup and spicy brown mustard to the sauce! (Trust me – it’s fantastic!) We also swapped out the traditional mozzarella cheese – and swapped in a mix of shredded Monterey Jack and sharp white cheddar cheese, plus sliced, white American cheese.

Bacon Cheeseburger Lasagna bakes up the same as any other lasagna recipe. But – when you serve it – sprinkle on toppings you’d find on a burger. We chose diced dill pickles, fresh tomatoes, red onion and shredded iceberg lettuce.  The fresh, zesty bite of the toppings really complement the creamy lasagna – and I guarantee you’ll be going back for seconds, just like we did!

What do I serve with Bacon Cheeseburger Lasagna?

Like any good bacon cheeseburger, a nice cold beer served with this lasagna sounds pretty good to me. Other than that, I’d keep it simple with a crisp, side salad that has been dressed with a simple vinaigrette. Enjoy!

  • Category: entree
  • Method: baked
  • Cuisine: American, Italian

Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 cups onions, diced

2 tablespoons garlic, minced

2 pounds 80/20 ground beef (don’t worry, fat will be drained off after cooking)

1 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard (we use Gulden’s)

1 pound bacon

1 pound lasagna noodles (20 strips)

2 pounds whole milk ricotta cheese

2 whole eggs, beaten

¼ cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley

1 teaspoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

4 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

1 pound sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded

½ pound white American sliced cheese (use real American cheese and not the brands that say “cheese food”)

2 cups tomato sauce

Toppings

Diced dill pickles

Diced fresh tomatoes

Diced red onion

Shredded iceberg lettuce


Instructions

In a medium to large skillet over medium, heat olive oil then add onions and garlic and cook for three minutes.

Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Remove from heat and pour into a strainer and strain off all fat and liquid.

Place the meat back in the pan and back on burner and add ketchup and mustard and cook for five minutes on medium heat. Set aside.

Cook bacon to crisp, drain on paper towels and crumble or chop. Set aside. Dispose of bacon fat.

Heat a large pot of water to a boil and once boiling, add a little salt then add all of the lasagna noodles. Cook to a few minutes less than fully cooked, still chewy. Drain and run under cold water. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix ricotta cheese, eggs, cooked crumbled bacon, chopped parsley, salt, pepper and the shredded jack cheese. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray a 9X13X3-inch casserole pan with kitchen pan spray.

Spread 2/3 cup of tomato sauce on bottom then lay out four lasagna noodles overlapping to fit.

Top with 1/3 of the ricotta mixture, spreading evenly.

Top that with one half of the American cheese slices.

Layer on four more lasagna noodles.

Spread half the meat mixture evenly and sprinkle on half of the shredded cheddar cheese.

Spread another 2/3 cup of tomato sauce over the cheese and layer on four more noodles.

Spread another one third ricotta mixture over the noodles and layer the second half of the American cheese.

Top the American with four more lasagna noodles, the rest of the meat mixture and the rest of the ricotta mixture.

Finally, top with the remaining four lasagna noodles, the remaining tomato sauce and the remaining shredded cheddar cheese.

Bake uncovered for one hour.

Remove from the oven, cover and let rest 20 minutes to set up.

Cut 4X3 into 12 pieces and serve with lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle over each portion.

    Hi Martha & Jack I have just joined your family feast website looking forward in trying out your recipes. The bacon cheeseburger lasagna do you use mince or diced beef.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Kind regards

      Hi Aggie – we’re so glad you found us! We used mince (ground) beef in this recipe. Hope you enjoy it!

    Hi, I haven’t made this, but I read your site every day and refer to it often for recipe inspiration. I really enjoy your site! This is one of the most interesting recipes I’ve seen. We live in North Carolina, and enjoy Carolina Style Cheeseburgers- i.e., with mustard, onions, chili, and slaw. I’m going to try this recipe with a chili-dog type sauce. I think it would only involve adding onions and chili powder to your beef mixture. What do you think? Thanks again for a great blog and addition to my days.
