This Copycat Five Guys Burger recipe replicates the delicious burger recipe found at the famous fast food joint. This easy burger recipe is a great option for a quick dinner. The burgers have a cheesy surprise with loads of cheese stuffed in between the two patties. Season these burgers on the grill for a truly Five Guys experience. This budget-friendly recipe is great for a cook-out or a weeknight meal. Five Guys features a medley of toppings to choose from, so get creative!

Makes: 2 burgers

  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 8 ounces white bourbon mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
  • 1 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 slices thick cut bacon, each slice cut in half
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • 2 hamburger buns
  • lettuce and accompaniments such as ketchup, mustard, as desired
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. In a 10-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add the mushrooms and onion and toss to coat. Continue to slowly cook, stirring often and adding Worcestershire sauce about half way through, until mushrooms release all of their moisture and they and the onions are nicely browned, about 20 minutes.
  3. While mushrooms cook, place bacon on a cooling rack set into a foil lined rimmed bake sheet and bake about 10 minutes or until as crispy as desired. Set aside. Use the remaining butter to spread on both sides of the buns and place them, cut side up, into the oven for 2 3 minutes to brown lightly.
  4. Divide ground beef into 4 portions and roll in your palms to make balls, then press into inch patties. Depress the center of each by making a thumbprint in the center this enables the meat to cook more evenly. Place a griddle or large skillet over medium heat and allow to get hot before placing the burgers on it. Cook, sprinkling with salt and pepper to taste, for 3 4 minutes per side or until done to your liking. Turn off heat and lay a piece of cheese on top of each burger so it begins to melt.
  5. Immediately assemble the burgers: on the bottom of the buns, lay lettuce then a cheese-topped burger, topped by the second cheese-topped burger. Spoon mushroom/onion mixture on top and finish with strips of bacon. Cover with the top of the buns and serve with garnishes at the table.

Five Guys Burger Copycat

Did You Know?

While this copycat Five Guy's Burger is delicious, this chain definitely wasn't the first to develop the cookout staple. There are actually several theories about how the cheeseburger was invented, so I'll stick with the story about how the cheeseburger got its start in America. Years after the hamburger was popularized, the cheeseburger was created in Pasadena, California. Sometime between 1924 and 1926, a 16-year-old at a sandwich shop decided to experiment by dropping a piece of American cheese on a hamburger while it was on the grill, and thus, the cheeseburger was born. 

Now, you can hardly walk down the street without passing any restaurant that serves a cheeseburger. The cheeseburger is less than a hundred years old, but is now found all around the world. There are thousands of combinations of this American classic. So whether you change up the bun, add extra toppings, or keep it plain, the cheeseburger is still a delicious staple.

I love Guy's burgers, and these look phenomenal! Would love to make these myself someday!

I love burgers and these look just as good as what you get at Five Guys. I can't wait to try this recipe!

This recipe was magical. The burger was DELICIOUS and tasted just as good, if not better, than the real thing! Yum!

These burgers were super hearty and really did taste restaurant quality. I'd recommend using fresh Provolone or Cheddar cheese from the deli.

I was shocked by how well this recipe mimics the flavor of Five Guys. It really hit the spot.
