About this Recipe

A tasty appetizer to keep your guests happy while the steaks are grilling. These pull-apart buns are perfect for sharing.


1 Pkg Maple Leaf Bacon
8 Dempster's Deluxe Hamburger Buns
250 g Mozzarella cheese
thinly sliced
250 g Cheddar cheese
thinly sliced
1 cup Melted butter
2 tsp Garlic powder
1/2 tsp Dried parsley
1/2 tsp Dill weed
1/2 tsp Onion powder
1/2 tsp Salt and pepper
1/2 cup Green onions
sliced thinly


Preheat your grill to medium heat, approximately 350 degrees.

Place bacon on a large piece of foil, and turn up edges of foil to form a flat pan. Grill bacon, turning with tongs frequently, until crisp. Let cool for a few minutes then crumble bacon in a medium-sized bowl.

In a large microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. Add the dried herbs and spices and mix together.

Place each hamburger bun on an individual piece of aluminum foil. Open the buns and place mozzarella cheese slices on the bun bottoms. Dip the inside of the bun tops into the melted butter mixture and place on top of bun bottoms.

Using a sharp knife cut a cross-hatch pattern into the buns. To do this slice the buns into ½ inch slices, making sure not to cut into the bun bottoms.

Place the thin slices of cheddar cheese in between the cut slices. Then sprinkle the tops with the crumbled bacon. Finish by sprinkling green onions on top of buns. Use a spatula to sprinkle the remaining butter/herb mixture over the buns.

Loosely wrap the foil around each bun and pinch the edges to close.

Place the bun packets on the grill over the indirect heat. Close the lid. Grill for 15 minutes with the lid closed. After 15 minutes, unwrap the foil and let the exposed buns grill for another 10 minutes with the lid closed.

Open packages and using a wide flipper, transfer buns to a serving platter.


If you are expecting a large crowd, these buns can be prepared a day ahead of time and kept chilled until it's time to heat them on the barbeque.
