How to make Candied Bacon for BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger

If you have never had candied bacon, you are in for a big treat! Candied bacon burger combines salty, sweet, and crispy in one delicious bite. This bacon will have crispy edges and a caramelized sugar coating when it comes out of the oven.

Start by lining a cooking sheet with aluminum foil. Place bacon slices on a sheet pan and sprinkle brown sugar evenly over bacon. Place in a preheated 400F oven for 20 minutes. When bacon is cooked, remove from the cookie sheet and set aside. That’s it, an easy way to candy bacon!

How to make homemade onion strings

Crispy onion strings are so easy to make and taste delicious on this tangy BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger. Start by slicing your large onion into thin slices. Add flour, salt, paprika, and oregano in a large ziplock bag. Add eggs to a medium size bowl and lightly whisk. Heat 1″ vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. By the handfuls, dredge onions in egg and add them to the ziplock bag with flour. Shake well to coat onions. Once the vegetable oil is hot, drop the coated onion strings into the oil and fry until they are golden brown and crispy. Remove from oil and place on paper towels.

How to make hamburger patties

In a medium size mixing bowl, add ground beef, salt, pepper, onion powder, and Worcestershire sauce. With your hands combine all ingredients well. Form ground beef into four 1/4 lb. hamburger patties. Grill hamburger patties on the BBQ grill or in a large skillet until fully cooked through. While patties are still warm, add a slice of cheese to each hamburger until melted.
