Well, it’s been a busy week at my house. With Easter week and all. So I was thinking I’ll make something that everyone makes, but with a little extra. This week is BBQ Bacon Onion Burgers. I promise the burgers well not disappoint.
Now let’s start by slicing the bacon and red onion into little places. I like to use a half pound of bacon and half of a red onion, but you can use more or less of the two depending on your likes. Now place them in a frying pan on medium heat. As the stove starts to heat-up head outside and start the briquettes. Now return to the kitchen and place the ground chuck in a dish that you can mix all the ingredients up in. I then add J Lee Roy’s to the top of the hamburger along with one egg. The egg is a binder for all the ingredients.
Don’t forget the bacon and onions on the stove. That’s a funny thing to say because there is no way your nose is going to let you forget this mixture is cooking. The aroma that fills your house will make everyone want to eat right now. The mixture should take about 15 or so minutes to cook. Make sure all the bacon is crispy this will help when the burgers are cooking.
I don’t like to add the grease from the bacon and onion mixture to the burger so I discard the grease. Now I dump the bacon and onions on top of the burger mixture. Now begin to mix with your hands the bacon and onion, J Lee Roy’s or your favorite BBQ sauce, egg and ground chuck together. Or you can teach your kids how to mix up the mixture.Once your done mixing the ingredients start making the Patties. I like to grab a hand full make them into racquet ball sizes and smash them to about a half inch thick patty. You should be able to make 7 burgers.
Your briquettes should be ready now. So spread them out evenly throughout the BBQ and place the grill on. Now add your patties and wait 5 minutes then flip the burgers. Now wait 7 to 10 more minutes for these delicious burgers. The last couple of minutes I like to add a couple of buns on the grill to make them a little crispy. Add your garnish and enjoy a juicy BBQ Bacon Onion Burger. I bet you love them!
