Ingredients:

3 pounds 80-85% lean ground beef

1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

4 tablespoon barbecue sauce

1 cup cheddar cheese, grated

1 onion, finely diced

6 thick cut bacon, thinly sliced

Hamburger buns

Lettuce

Tomatoes

Instructions:

In a large bowl mix together the ground beef, seasoning salt, black pepper, and barbecue sauce. Using a 1/4 measuring cup, measure out 12 balls of hamburger meat. Then make thin patties and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Put the hamburger patties in the refrigerator and allow to chill at least an hour. In a skillet over medium heat cook the onion and bacon till the bacon is crisp and the onions are caramelized. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Then place equal amounts of the onion and bacon mixture in the center of 6 patties. Then top the onion mixture with equal amounts of cheddar cheese. Use the remaining 6 patties as the "top" to the stuffed burgers. Seal the edges well and cook on a hot grill till the juices run clear. Baste with additional BBQ sauce and serve on a bun with lettuce and tomato.
