If you’re a regular beef hamburger kinda person (hey I get it, just driving by a burger place makes me want ground beef like a heathen) then this recipe is a fun twist on a classic favorite.
1 lb of ground meat (I use 80/20 for the juiciest burgers)
1 medium onion
10-20 slices mushrooms
8 slices of bacon
Bone Suckin’ BBQ Sauce
Throw the bacon into a skillet and cook until crispy. While the bacon is cooking, slice up the onions into thin rings and add them to the hot bacon grease. Once they are semi-tranlucent, add the sliced mushrooms.
While the veggies are cooking, crumble the ground meat into a bowl with salt and pepper. If you’re a naturalist, go ahead and form them into patties. I often times add Weber Grill Creations Hamburger mix to my ground burgers (no I am not a spokesperson for Weber Grill Creations, just a huge fan).
Form the ground beef into 4 patties and cook them on the grill at about 400 degrees for 4 minutes on each side (for medium well done burgers).
Remove the veggies from the stove after they have cooked down. After removing the burgers from the grill, top the burgers with Bone Suckin’ BBQ Sauce (if you have never had this, it’s the best all natural BBQ sauce out there!) onion/mushroom combo and bacon.
Of course you can make your burgers the safe traditional way, but why not give your guests something to salivate over? Bon Appetite!
