We love hamburgers and bacon so I'm always trying new ways to make burgers.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Who doesn't love a good grilled burger in the summer? Stuff it with chopped bacon and you have an amazing burger. Chopped onions are sauteed in bacon grease and added to the ground sirloin and ground chuck. The mixture of meats, bacon, and onions gives the burgers a depth of flavor and moisture. This one is one deliciously juicy burger.
