BACON, ONION, AND CHEESE STUFFED BURGERS
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon hot sauce (optional)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 strips bacon, diced
1/2 onion, chopped
1 cup grated sharp Cheddar
4 burger buns
Lettuce, tomato, pickles for garnish
1.)Preheat grill to medium.
In a bowl combine beef, garlic, hot sauce, salt and pepper, to taste, being careful not to over mix.
2.)Warm a skillet over medium heat and fry bacon until crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
3.)Keep heat on skillet and fry a pinch of the beef in the bacon fat to test seasoning. Adjust seasoning, if needed, then form 8 even thin patties, about 1/2-inch thick and set aside.
4.)Saute onions in bacon fat in skillet until tender, 5 minutes. Place onions and bacon in a bowl with cheese.
5.)Form a spoonful of bacon-cheese mixture into a ball, then place in the center of 4 patties.
6.)Top each with another patty and seal the edges. Grill burgers over medium-high heat, flipping once until desired doneness is reached, approximately 4 minutes each side for medium.
7.)Serve in buns with garnishes.
Alternative: In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, sear the burgers 4 minutes on each side.
