I was in a hurry and needed something quick. I wanted sliders, and I love putting onions on everything. I was thinking of what else I could add when I remembered bacon makes everything better! I made these quickly and they came out great.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Form ground beef into 3 evenly-sized patties. Place patties in a non-stick skillet and cook over medium heat to desired doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 150 degrees F (65 degrees C).

  • Place bacon in a separate skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon slices and drain on paper towels, reserving bacon grease in the skillet. Add onion to skillet; cook and stir in bacon grease until translucent and browned, about 10 minutes.

  • Place 1 ground beef patty, 2 slices bacon, and 1/3 of the onions on each roll; top each with barbeque sauce.

I buy ground beef in bulk and freeze it by the 1/2 pound so instead of 1/3 lb. for 3 burgers I made 4 burgers using 1/2 lb. I left the rest of the ingredients as written. I used what I already had but I wish I had had a not-so-sweet bbq sauce. The sweet factor was a little too much with the sweet sauce and the sweet Hawaiian Roll. Next time I make these they would be nice with a hickory smoked bbq sauce. I also think I would prefer the onions cooked in rings rather than diced but that is just personal preference. The one thing missing from the recipe is salt. That is a needed ingredient. Read More

Side note to my earlier review: I used Veterans Sweet Heat BBQ sauce. It complimented the burgers very well. Read More
