  1. Start my caramelizing your onions in olive oil over low heat for 45 minutes to an hour.
  2. Combine your beef, bacon, salt and pepper and form into 4 patties. Press the center of the patty with your thumb as the center will rise as it cooks! Cook over medium heat on a grill or oiled cast iron pan for 3-4 minutes each side. Once you flip, top with cheese and cover until it melts.

  3. Remove patties from the pan then add your buttered bread until crispy. .
