Ingredients

  • 8 slices meaty bacon
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons sweet pickle relish (preferred brand Wickles)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • A few dashes Frank’s Red Hot sauce
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 potato rolls or soft sesame seed buns
  • 2 1/4 pounds 80% lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, peeled
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil
  • Bread & Butter or dill pickle chips/sliced pickles
  • Iceberg lettuce or romaine heart, chopped
  • 8 slices sharp white American cheese or mild deli-sliced cheddar

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°F. 

Bake bacon on a slotted pan in the center of the oven until crispy. Cut into 2-inch jumbo bacon bits. 

In a small bowl, combine sour cream, ketchup, relish, Worcestershire and hot sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Split the rolls and toast them lightly. 

Season meat with salt and pepper, and grate 3 tablespoons of onion over the meat. Form 4 thin, wide patties. Finely chop the remainder of the onion and rinse with water; reserve. 

Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat with half a tablespoon of oil, a half turn of the pan. Cook patties 5-6 minutes turning once; melt 2 slices cheese over each patty.

Assemble burgers by layering bun bottoms with lettuce, pickles, a cheeseburger, bacon bits, chopped onions, sauce and bun tops.
