Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • seasonings to taste (salt and pepper, Worcestershire sauce, onion salt, and garlic salt)
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 8 frozen onion rings
  • 1/2 cup Kraft Hickory Smoke Barbecue Sauce

Instructions

  • Work your favorite ground beef seasonings into your ground beef.
  • Form the beef into 4 patties.
  • Cook your burgers thoroughly flipping once near the end to cook on each side. Cook your burgers for about 8-12 minutes until the juice that comes out is clear. (For best results use a meat thermometer. 140-145 for medium, 150-155 for medium well, 160-165 for well done.)
  • Add cheese to the top of your burgers when they are about half way done cooking to let it melt.
  • Cook bacon strips in a saute pan till crispy.
  • Cook frozen onion rings according to package direction.
  • Build your burger by placing lettuce on your bun, then your burger, then bacon, then onion rings, drizzle barbecue sauce over the top of each burger. Close with top half of the bun.
