Brown Sugar Caramelized Onion Bacon Cheeseburgers
Light Brown Sugar
Prep time :
Bake/Cook time :
Yield :
4 burgers



  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Caramelized Onion

  • 2 large white onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup Imperial Sugar Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 slices cooked bacon
  • 4 slices Gouda cheese


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Add olive oil, swirling to coat pan.  Add onions and brown sugar.  Stir to evenly coat onions.  Cook for about 45 minutes, stirring frequently until onions are cooked down, tender and a deep golden brown color.  Once cooked down, stir in beef stock and Worcestershire sauce, increase heat to medium high.  Cook until the liquid is absorbed.  Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine all of ingredients for hamburgers.  Mix well, and form into 4 equal size patties.
  3. Preheat grill to medium high heat.  Place patties on the grill, and cook for 5-6 minutes per side.  Place slices of cheese on each burger during the last 2 minutes of cooking.  If you would like the buns toasted, place them on the grill during the last 2 minutes of cooking as well.
  4. To serve, top each bun with a cheeseburger patty, a slice of bacon, and about ¼ cup of caramelized onion mixture.
