Smokey Mesquite BBQ Bacon Burgers

My Oven/Range is still broken, but I finally got a tracking number and it looks like the part will be here on Tuesday.  Cross your fingers it comes on time.  Luckily, I have a few recipes saved up.  

Every single time I get on Pinterest I see those yummy looking Smokey Mesquite BBQ Meatball Sliders and I couldn't resist anymore.

I found the Kraft Fresh Take Smokey Mesquite BBQ Mix at Walmart for under $2.  Worth it!  It was hanging up next to the cheese.

I came home from the store and threw it in the pantry.  Several days later, I grabbed it out of the pantry and had a "duh" moment.  Umm . . . . there is a package of cheese in there.  Oops.

The cheese went in the trash, but the smokey bread crumb mix was good to go.

Instead of dealing with meatballs, I went with regular hamburger patties.  These burgers turned out AMAZING.  The smokey bread crumb mix adds a ton of flavor to the burgers and when topped with Cheddar cheese, grilled onions, bacon and barbeque sauce, this is one gourmet burger you are going to want to try.

Perfect recipe for Memorial Day Weekend!
Smokey Mesquite BBQ Bacon Burgers
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
