Some days you just want a burger that’s dripping with toppings. This one fits the bill. Huge beef patties topped with caramelized onions, drizzled with barbecue sauce, loaded down with melted mozzarella and piles of bacon. You’re going to want to sink your teeth into this bad boy. If you can get your hands around this massive burger first! Good luck!
I love a great burger. They just scream summer to me. This incredible burger is no exception. It is one of my favourite burgers. I have a thing for beef, not going to lie. I love beef over any other meat. So when it comes time to whip up a great burger I always start with great quality beef.
The second thing I reach for when making burgers is onions. I’m a total sucker for caramelized onions. I cannot get enough of them. If there’s a way to top every dish with caramelized onions I am going to find each and every way. It’s my life’s mission. Well that and finding out why American Pepsi and Canadian Pepsi taste so different. But I digress.
We’re also suckers for a specific type of mozzarella cheese here at the B household. We love that pizza mozzarella stores are selling now. Saputo makes a mozzarellissima that is to die for. Any excuse to slap that stuff on a recipe is going to be taken. It melts beautifully on pizza and lasagna, but it’s also wicked good on things like burgers or grinders. Trust me, I know my melty cheese, people.
If you want to top a burger with the perfect ingredient you need to reach for bacon. Whether you use candied bacon or regular bacon, it’s going to take your burger from plain to perfection in one small step. Bacon makes everything better. My motto lately is #baconallthethings! It’s a good motto to have. Especially during bacon month.

I could not shove this in my pie hole fast enough. This burger is amazeballs. All those layers of yummy combined is pure heaven. You will end up eating three or four of these things. I know I did.
