Blue Cheese, Bacon & Caramelized Onion Burgers

I absolutely love grilling in the spring and summer!

If you ask me, EVERYTHING tastes better on the grill. 

So I am super excited that Spring is here and that the weather has been so beautiful here in Portland that we've been able to bust out the grill on multiple occasions now. 

Husband and I whipped up a batch of Blue Cheese, Bacon & Caramelized Onion burgers this past weekend, and they are, hands down, the BEST burger I've ever made in my entire life. 

That's a bold statement. 

But it's so true. 

All of the flavors in this burger are so intense, but they come together so beautifully, and as soon as you bite into one, you'll know exactly what I mean. 

So do yourself a favor and make these this weekend. 

I promise's a good idea. 

Blue Cheese, Bacon & Caramelized Onion Burgers

Makes 6 burgers

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef

4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup minced onion
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 egg

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Divide meat into 6 sections (about 1/4 lb each) and make patties. Set aside. Turn on your BBQ to heat up!

Caramelized Onions
1 tbsp butter
1 sweet onion, sliced
salt and pepper

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium high heat and add sliced onions. Saute onions, moving them around in the pan, until they turn a nice dark caramel color, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat. 

Cook up some bacon....I like mine extra crispy!! 

Grill patties 5 minutes per side, or until well done. Spread dijon mustard and a little mayo on your rolls and top rolls with caramalized onions, bacon slices and your burger patties.
