With a combination of ground chuck and sirloin, thick bacon, and roasted red onion, these Bacon Burgers are juicy and full of flavor. And when they're served on toasted brioche buns with your favorite toppings, they're sure to be a hit!

The ingredients make this burger combination unforgettable! Red onion is roasted and softened in the oven while lemon juice and mayonnaise are mixed for a refreshing burger sauce.

Makes 8 burgers

Bacon Burgers on Brioche Buns Ingredients

  • 2 medium red onions (thinly sliced)
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (plus more for brushing)
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 8 slices of thick-cut bacon (12 ounces)
  • 3 pounds mixed ground chuck and ground sirloin
  • 12 ounces brie (sliced)
  • 8 brioche burger buns (split)

Bacon Burgers on Brioche Buns Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the onions with two tablespoons of olive oil and roast until softened, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with lemon juice. Gradually whisk in the remaining 1/4 cup of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook the bacon over moderately high heat until crisp in a large skillet. Drain on paper towels and break each strip in half.
  4. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Form the ground meat into eight patties. Season generously with salt and pepper and brush with olive oil. Grill over moderately high heat until well-browned on the bottom, 5 minutes. Flip the burgers, mound the brie on top, and grill for 4 minutes longer, until the cheese is slightly melted and the burgers are medium-rare.
  5. Spread the lemon mayonnaise on the cut sides of the buns; set the burgers on the bottoms and top with the bacon and onions. Close the burgers and serve right away.
