Ingredients• 8 bacon strips • 2 tablespoons onion, finely chopped • 2 tablespoons ketchup • 1 clove garlic, minced • 1 teaspoon sugar • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce • 1 teaspoon steak sauce • 1/4 teaspoon cider vinegar • 1 pound ground beef • 4 slices sharp cheddar cheese • 4 hamburger buns, split and toasted • lettuce leaves, optional, for topping • tomato, optional, for topping • onion, optional, for topping • pickle slices, optional, for topping
In a skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp.
Combine the onion, ketchup, garlic, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, steak sauce, and cider vinegar in a bowl.
Add the ground beef to the bowl and massage it gently with your hands, ultimately shaping the mixture into 4 hamburger patties.
Cook the patties over medium heat, covered, for 4-7 minutes on each side.
Top the patties with the cheddar cheese and grill until the cheese melts, about 1 minute.
Serve the burgers on the buns with the bacon and the toppings of your choice.
