Mega Western Bacon Burger with Homemade Onion Strings


For the Onion Strings:

1 small onion, sliced thin

1 cup buttermilk

1 cup flour

3 cups canola oil 

1 tablespoon Meat Rub

For the Burger: 

4 5 oz burger patties, 80% lean beef

8 slabs of bacon

4 slices sharp cheddar cheese

1 brioche bun

1 tablespoon Meat Rub

¼ cup Honey Sweet BBQ Sauce



Oven bake your bacon at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. While the bacon is crisping, start on your onion strings. 

Slice onion very thin. Place in a baking dish and cover with buttermilk and soak for at least an hour.

Combine dry ingredients and set aside.

Heat oil to 375 degrees.

Grab a handful of onions, throw into the flour mixture, tap to shake off excess, and submerge into hot oil. Fry for a few minutes and remove from the oil soon as golden brown. 

Set on paper towel to drain excess oil. Set aside and start cooking your burger.

Take the Meat Rub and season your beef patties on both sides.

Add 1 tablespoon of oil to your skillet. Cook burger for about 3 minutes on each side. Add a slice of cheddar cheese between each layer. 

Remove bacon from the oven. 

Toast your brioche bun and start assembling your burger. 

Add your Rufus Teague Honey Sweet BBQ sauce to finish off your Mega Western Burger.
