Caramelized Onion Bacon Burgers
August 04, 2014
"I found this recipe in the 2013 edition of The Best of Country Cooking Annual recipes.It was sent into them by Jordan Mason from Brookville,Pennsylvania. And since there wasn't a calorie count,it had to be posted before I tried it.I'm omitting the Hamburger Buns to lower the calorie count.But if you want to use the buns the instructions for the preparation of them are included.Burgers without the buns are 494 calories.
