I was craving burgers one night and I added a little of this and some of that and I came up with this very moist burger. If you make this, please make sure the onion is frozen. The frozen onion and not handling the meat so much is what makes this very moist and juicy. My son came up with the name. I’m just guessing on cooking time. Posted on July 30th 2005.
- 1 lb ground chuck
- 1⁄4 cup frozen chopped onions
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons garlic powder (to taste)
- 1 teaspoon black pepper (to taste)

- 4 slices American cheese
- 4 slices tomatoes
- 2 teaspoons mayonnaise, divided
- 4 hamburger buns, split toasted if desired
- In a large bowl, add meat, onion, garlic powder, and pepper.
- Mix well, but do not overmix, if overmixed, meat will dry out during cooking.
- Pre-heat large skillet over medium heat.
- Divide meat mixture into 4 equal portions.
- Flatten into 1/4 inch patties.

- Place a cheese slice on each patty; let cheese slightly melt.

YUM YUM YUM! Nothing better than a bacon cheeseburger! I always do my bacon in the oven on about 375 for 15-20 minutes. That way I can do a whole package and not have to babysit it on the stovetop. Will definately make these again!
