INGREDIENTS

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 8 slices bacon finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons yellow onion finely minced
  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef 80/20
  • 1 tablespoon grill seasoning I used McCormick mesquite
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In a skillet over medium heat add the oil, then add the bacon and minced onion. Cook until onion is translucent, and bacon is slightly cooked- it won’t be fully cooked or crispy (about 5-7 minutes cook time). Transfer to a medium bowl. 
  • Add the ground beef, grill seasoning, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper to the bowl and mix until combined. *
  • Form into 6 patties. Place patties on a baking sheet or pan lined with parchment paper. Place patties in the fridge or freezer for 30 minutes. (Helps hold patties together).
  • Remove from fridge and grill patties for 5 minutes on each side or until cooked through. **  Top with cheese if desired. 
  • Serve on a bun with lettuce, purple onion, tomato, mayo, and ketchup (if desired)! 

RECIPE NOTES

*You don't need a lot of salt and pepper. You can easily omit it if you want, but I added a pinch of each. I didn't specify a particular amount because some might not want it due to the grill seasoning. 
** You can cook them on a skillet too. This is what I did for convenience. Just use the skillet you cooked the bacon and onions in; you may want to place a teaspoon of olive oil in the skillet to prevent sticking, but if there's still some bacon grease you should be fine.
