Classic Western Burger



Quick and easy

Quick and easy

Quick and easy

Cook Time:

15 to 20 minutes


10 servings


10  slices  thick-cut bacon

2  large  eggs

2/3  cup  milk

1  onion, peeled and minced

2  teaspoons  minced garlic

3  pounds  ground lean beef

1  cup  bread crumbs

10  slices  red onion

10  slices  cheddar cheese

10  hamburger buns


In a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over Medium-High heat, cook bacon, turning occasionally, until browned on both sides and crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. When cool, break each slice in half.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat eggs, milk, onion, garlic, 11/4 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper to blend. Add beef and breadcrumbs and mix gently.

Form into 10 equal patties, each about 4 1/2 inches wide. Brush onion slices lightly on both sides with bacon fat in pan. Discard remaining fat.

Lay patties and onion slices on a barbecue grill. Cook, turning meat and onions once to brown on both sides, 6 to 8 minutes total.

About 2 minutes before patties are done, top each with a slice of cheese. Also lay bun halves, cut side down, on grill and toast 1 to 2 minutes.

Set bun bottoms on a platter or plates. With a wide spatula, transfer patties to bun bottoms. Top each with a grilled onion slice, 2 pieces of bacon, and a spoonful of special slaw. Cover with bun tops
