BBQ Bacon Burgers

BBQ Bacon Burgers
Not going to lie.  I could barely eat half of one of these.  Next time I might make them slider style.  My hubby had no problems polishing one off though.
My Dad couldn’t cook many things but he was the grill master at our house.  Summers were BBQ season at our house when I was a kid.  We didn’t have AC and if it was hot out he would grill dinner to keep the house cooler.  So I always feel like making BBQ food when the weather starts to warm up.  These are over the top burgers, great to make for Father’s day or a BBQ.
There is a trick to making the onion strings I’m going to share with you.  After you coat the onion rings in the buttermilk and seasoned flour let them rest for a bit on a tray.  The buttermilk starts to absorb the flour a little bit and you’ll get a better crunch.

BBQ BACON BURGERS

Green leaf lettuce
Sharp cheddar
BBQ Sauce
Onion strings (See recipe at end)
Hamburgers, grilled, or cooked in an iron skillet
Bacon, cooked crisp (Homemade for extra points!) 🙂
Hamburger Buns (Homemade for even more extra points!)

Form 1/4 to 1/3 lb ground beef into a patty, making an indent in the center of the patty.  Cook on a grill or in a cast iron skillet over medium heat.  Flip after a few minutes, when the first side is well browned.  After a couple minutes on the second side top with cheese and cover to melt.  Make sure to lightly butter the inside of the buns and toast in a skillet.  I usually do this before cooking the hamburgers and then set aside while the hamburgers cook.

For the onion strings:
1 onion, thinly sliced (white or yellow is fine)
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups flour
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Oil, for cooking

Pour buttermilk over the onions rings and toss to coat well.   Combine the flour and seasonings in a shallow bowl.  Take a small handful of onion rings and coat in the seasoned flour, shaking off excess.  Place on a tray while you repeat with remaining onions.  Set aside while you heat a couple inches of oil over medium heat (or use a deep fryer).
Cook in batches until golden brown.  Place on a wire rack over a baking sheet when cooked, repeating with the rest.
