This Bacon Fried Onion Cheeseburger is a bacon cheeseburger on steroids. The ingredients include ground beef, fried onions and cheese all within the burger itself.

OMGosh, this little guy, the Bacon Fried Onion Cheeseburger, rocked!  I started with my previous French Fried Onion Burgers and took them to the next level.

Are you on a low carb diet? These only have 3 carbs total if you have them without the buns.

Why are my burgers mushy?

Lean meat can be lacking in flavor AND texture. Use more fatty meat (80/20) and using a binder, such as the cheese (or eggs or bread crumbs), the burger should turn out better.

How do you add flavor to a burger?

Try to add Worcestershire or steak sauce. Or, seasonings/herbs help with flavor as well. But, if you follow this recipe, you’ll find some flavor.

How do you tell if a Bacon Fried Onion Cheeseburger is undercooked “done”?


Press on the burger with a spatula and if the juices come out “reddish”, your burger is not cooked through. When the juices are clear, your burger is cooked through. The lighter the “red” becomes, the more cooked it becomes. Just slightly pink juices would give you a medium to medium well burger.

  1. Can these be cooked on a grill?

    • Sure they can, but you may want to put foil under them. The cheese will melt and drip. Great question!! Thanks for stopping by and checking us out!!

      Have a great day!

    • I’m like your kids then 🙂 If I’m real hungry, I’ll grab a can and munch on them while I’m cooking dinner, to hold me over. Hope you liked them as much as I did. Thanks so much for checking them out.

      Have a great week!
