BBQ Bacon Burgers
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1-1/2 teaspoons dried minced onion
1-1/2 teaspoons steak seasoning (I used McCormick Montreal seasoning)
1 pound ground beef
4 slices Monterey Jack cheese
4 hamburger buns, split
Other hamburger toppings of your choice (tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, onions, etc)
Mix together mayonnaise and barbecue sauce in a small bowl. In another bowl, combine the crumbled bacon, 2 tablespoons mayonnaise mixture, onion and steak seasoning; add the ground beef and mix well (it worked best when I just used my hands to incorporate all the seasonings). Shape into four patties.
Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until done. Place a piece of cheese on top. Cover and cook 1-2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Spread remaining mayonnaise mixture over buns; add a burger and other toppings of choice.
Makes 4 big burgers.
