Smokey Mesquite BBQ Bacon Burgers

adapted from: Food Family & Finds


1 Lb. ground beef

1/2 pkg. Kraft Smokey Mesquite BBQ breadcrumbs

salt and pepper

1 egg

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1/2 Lb. bacon 

1 medium onion, thinly sliced

Kraft Hickory BBQ sauce

Cheddar cheese, sliced

4 hamburger buns


In a medium bowl, mix together ground beef, breadcrumbs, a little salt and pepper, egg and Worcestershire sauce.  Mix together until combined.  Form beef into four patties, slightly larger than your hamburger buns; set aside.  Cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp.  Discard all but 1 Tablespoon bacon grease.  Add the sliced onions and cook over medium heat until browned and tender.  


Meanwhile, grill the hamburgers on the George Foreman or on a grill pan on the stove.  When done, top each burger with sliced Cheddar cheese and place in a warm oven to melt the cheese and keep warm until the onions are finished cooking.  


Toast the hamburger buns, top with a hamburger, grilled onions, sliced bacon and top with barbecue sauce.  Serves: 4
