Bacon, Caramelized Onions and Pepper Jack Cheese Stuffed Burger

If you love burgers, why not try this recipe, Bacon, Caramelized Onions and Pepper Jack Cheese Stuffed Burger.  I’ve been making these burgers for years now and will be posting many of my recipes on our blog over the next few months.  Cooking has always been a passion of mine and this recipe is no exception.  These burgers are so good it will make you want to dance on the table.  Stuffing a burger with other items also means you won’t have all of the condiments typically added to a burger come sliding out on that first bite!  These burgers don’t need anything else either, no mustard or ketchup or fancy lettuce.   I would recommend a sturdy bun also.  I usually use a pretzel bun or one of those nice, big sandwich buns from your supermarket deli.  Give them a try and let me know in the comments below how they turn out.  I wish I had a picture of these burgers for the post but I always forget to take a picture.  Maybe I’ll take the time the next burger night to get some nice pictures for my future cookbook.

Bacon, Caramelized Onions & Pepper Jack Cheese Stuffed Burger

1 lb. Ground Beef or Chuck (your call on fat content)

6-8 slices of Bacon (diced)

8 oz Pepper Jack Cheese (or your favorite cheese) shredded

1 Yellow or Red onion (sliced thinly into rings)

Salt & Pepper to taste

Fry bacon in a pan until crispy.  Move off to a paper towel to drain.  Reserve some of the bacon grease to saute and caramelize the onions.  Let everything cool and then mix together in a bowl the bacon, cheese and onion.   Form a patty that is half the size you want the final burger to be and add some of the cheese mixture.  Cover with the same amount of meat to form a burger.  Cook.  Enjoy.  Makes about 4 if your burgers aren’t HUGE.
