Recipe by RSL5709
READY IN: 35mins




  • In large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp, about 4-5 minutes. Remove from pan and drain on paper towel lined plate.
  • Discard all but about 1 T. of the bacon drippings.
  • Chop 1/4 of an onion finely, then slice the other 1 3/4 onions.
  • Sweat the chopped onion in the reserved bacon drippings for 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan and combine with the bacon.
  • Coat pan with the olive oil and drop in the sliced onions. Let sweat until soft and slightly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove and place in bowl; keep warm.
  • While the onions are sweating, combine the sirloin, Worcestershire, hot sauce, grill seasoning, and the bacon/onion mixture. Form into 4 equal-sized patties.
  • Cook burgers, covered, in skillet, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare and 6 minutes per side for medium-well.
  • Place a slice of cheese on each burger and cover over low heat to melt the cheese.
  • Stir steak sauce into the cooked sliced onions.
  • Toast the buns if desired.
  • Serve burgers with the smothered onions on a toasted bun.
  • *NOTE* I served these without the buns and enjoyed them that way also. Just topped the burgers with the smothered onions and left the bun out of the equation.
