Onion Ring Cheeseburger

This Onion Ring Cheeseburger is cooked on a plank, then topped with mozzarella cheese, provolone cheese, onion rings and bacon. My hubby has dubbed it The Ringer. I was too busy shoving this burger in my face to argue.

For the burger:

For the toppings:

  • 1 head lettuce
  • ¼ pound mozzarella cheese more if desired
  • ¼ pound provolone cheese more if desired
  • 1 batch onion rings cooked
  • ½ pound bacon cooked
  • 1 package hamburger buns


  • Soak 2 wooden planks for at least an hour.
  • Preheat grill before using. Bring it to a medium heat.
  • Mix spices with ground beef. do not overmix, it makes the meat tough.
  • Form your burgers to your preferred size. Make sure you dimple each burger, you just lightly press your thumb down in the middle of each burger so a small imprint appears.
  • Place the patties on the planks, leaving a bit of space between each burger patty.
  • Place planks on the preheated grill. Put lid down and cook for about 6 to 8 minutes on each side.
  • I like mine to hit the grill for a bit more char and colour so once they are at about a medium rare I place each one on the grill grates and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
  • Place patties back on the planks.
  • Cover each patty with a slice of each cheese. Put the lid down until the cheese melts.
  • Remove from grill carefully. Place on a platter to transfer to your work space.
  • Place bottom buns on plates. Top each with a burger, onion rings, and lots and lots of bacon. Place top bun on each. Use a skewer to hold each burger together.
  • Serve with a big old onion ring loving smile!


Recipe by Cravings of a Lunatic
For added flavour you can use garlic butter and toast your buns. Really worth it if you have time.
Number of burgers can vary. You can make 4 x ½ pounders (yikes, monster size), or 8 x ¼ pounders (eeny weenie), or go for middle ground and make 6 perfectly sized burgers.
