Dressed-Up Bacon Burgers

The tangy homemade sauce that tops these mouth-watering burgers helps them stand out from the rest. This recipe is a cinch to throw together. Because the bacon cooks on the grill alongside the burgers, cleanup is a breeze, too.


8 servings


3/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon granulated (white) sugar
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 pounds ground beef
8 bacon strips
8 slices cheddar cheese
8 hamburger buns, split and toasted
lettuce leaves


In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, pickle relish, ketchup, sugar and onion until well blended. Cover and refrigerate. In a large bowl, combine the Worcestershire sauce, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture; mix well. Shape into eight patties.

Place bacon on a piece of heavy-duty foil on one side of the grill. Place the patties on the other side of the grill. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 8 to 10 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160°F (71°C) and juices run clear and until bacon is crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels.

Place a cheese slice on each patty; cover and grill until cheese is melted. Layer bottom half of each bun with the lettuce, patty, bacon and mayonnaise mixture. Replace bun tops.
