Grilled Sweet 'N Spicy Bacon Burger
Serves: 4
You can't go wrong with zesty bbq, bacon, roasted jalapeños and sweet onions, and cheddar onto of grilled beef and sweet bread. It's the perfect, irresistible Game Day Burger! This recipe will make four, quarter-pound burgers so make sure to double or triple if grilling for a crowd!
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Sliced Cheddar Cheese
  • 10 slices thick-cut uncooked bacon
  • 1 sweet onion, halved and sliced
  • 4 jalapeños (ribs and seeds removed), thinly sliced
  • King's Hawaiian Smoked Bacon BBQ Sauce
  • King's Hawaiian Hamburger Rolls
  1. Line a grill pan with foil. Cut two of the bacon strips into ½ inch slices. On one half the pan, place the sliced onion and jalapeño and then top with bacon slices.
  2. On the other half of the pan, lay out the remaining slices of bacon.
  3. Place the grill-pan in a preheated grill (over indirect heat) to begin cooking while the burgers are prepared. Allow them to cook until your desired level of cooking is reached -- some may prefer crispier bacon than I do .... and some may prefer their vegetables grilled longer to bring out more sweetness.
  4. Divide ground beef into four patties. Season each side with salt and pepper. Place on your grill and cook till desired cooking temperature is reached (flip once).
  5. Top with cheddar cheese and then remove patties and place on King's Hawaiian hamburger rolls. Top with bacon, King's Hawaiian Smoked Bacon BBQ Sauce, grilled jalapeños and onions.
  6. Enjoy!
Want to save some time on Game Day? You can prepare the jalapeño, onions and bacon ahead of time in your oven. Cook them (foil lined cookie sheet) in a preheated 425 degree oven for 10-20 minutes, or until your desired level of cooking is reached for the vegetables and the meat.
