Onion Ring Topped BBQ Bacon Burger

by Erin

What’s better than a BBQ burger? A BBQ burger topped with a crispy onion ring!

My committee meeting went well yesterday! Insert ginormous sigh of relief. Albeit, a short-lived relief because I still have a lot of work to do. But I will spare you all the science jargon that follows with the rest of that train of thought. All you need to know is that I am moving along in a positive direction, hopefully ending in May.

Now to celebrate, let’s all eat a big juicy BBQ burger topped with bacon, cheese AND an onion ring! I used Alexia’s frozen onion rings, because after trying them I was instantly converted from an onion ring hater to an onion ring lover. Seriously these things rock, and I usually dislike the texture of onions in any form. Even the majority of other onion rings, frozen or at a restaurant, do not appeal to me, but Alexia’s are a whole different story.

Don’t forget the pretzel buns – the best burger buns ever created.

One year ago: Red Velvet Crème Brulee Cupcakes


Serves 2


1-13.5 oz. package frozen onion rings (or homemade)

2 slices thick cut bacon

1/2 lb. ground beef

1/4 cup finely diced onion

1/4 cup BBQ sauce + more for the burgers

Salt & pepper, to taste

2 slices cheddar cheese

2 hamburger buns

Lettuce, tomato, pickles, etc.


  1. Cook onion rings according to package directions. While those are in the oven, cook your bacon to desired doneness and drain on paper towels.
  2. For the burger patties, in a small bowl, stir ground beef, onions, BBQ sauce, salt and pepper together until combined. Divide into two equal patties. Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and cook patties on medium heat for approximately 7 minutes per side. Place a slice of cheese on top of each and remove from pan.
  3. To assemble burgers, place cooked patty onto hamburger buns and top with more BBQ sauce, cooked bacon, onion rings and any other desired toppings. Serve immediately with any remaining onion rings and/or fries.

Onion ring over anything makes it better. Also, your logo is so cute! Chocolate chunk cookie with glasses? I faint…
