Crumble ground beef into Classic Batter Bowl. Add onion, ketchup, garlic pressed with Garlic Press, salt and black pepper; mix gently but thoroughly. Form mixture into 12 round patties, about 1/4 inch thick. Fold cheese slices into quarters and place on half of the patties. Top with bacon and remaining patties; seal well, forming six stuffed burgers.
