I’m not the type of person to have an addictive personality.
I smoked when I was 16. I was “cool”. Clearly, I was very misguided on the definition of “cool”. After a while I decided I didn’t want to smoke anymore and put them down cold turkey. I never fell into drugs, but do love wine. I’ve just never had a true addiction.
Here it comes; The big reveal.
I am addicted to…
Wait for it…
The most amazing, juicy Bison burgers slathered with homemade Smoked Red Windsor Pimento Cheese and topped with Porter Beer Caramelized Onions. Those bad boys were served with Bacon Wrapped Mozzarella Stuffed Onion Rings drenched in a Sweet Bourbon BBQ Sauce.
Hi. My name is Melissa and I’m a Cheeseburger ADDICT!
I mean come on y’all. Can you blame me?
Bison Burgers with Smoked Red Windsor Pimento Cheese & Porter Caramelized Onions
- 6 Bison burgers
- 6 large buns
- 1 batch homemade Pimento Cheese (Click Here for Recipe)
- 3 onions, thinly sliced
- 1 cup Porter beer
- 1 stick butter
- salt & pepper to taste
- sliced tomatoes
- condiments of your choice
Place butter in a saute pan on your stove top. When melted, add onions, salt & pepper. Allow to cook over medium heat about 10 minutes. Add beer. Continue to cook until the onions develop a rich caramel color. Set aside.
Grill burgers to desired degree. Immediately top with condiments, lettuce, tomato, a scoop of pimento cheese and caramelized onions. Serve with mac n cheese, bacon wrapped onion rings or another side of your choice.
Bacon Wrapped Mozzarella Stuffed Onion Rings with Sweet Bourbon BBQ Sauce
- 12 rings of raw onion
- 12 slices of thin cut bacon
- 6 string cheese logs
- 1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce; I love Sweet Baby Rays Bourbon Sauce
Split each log of string cheese into 2 pieces. Gently wrap cheese in a ring inside the ring of onion. Holding the cheese in place, wrap a slice of bacon around the rings, going through the center of the onion. Continue wrapping around the ring until you reach the end of the bacon. Continue this until all rings are filled with cheese and wrapped with bacon.
Place all rings on a baking dish with wire rack. You want to make sure the heat reaches the underside of the bacon as well to ensure they are not “soggy” on the bottom. Brush each with BBQ sauce and place in a 425 degree oven. Allow to cook until the bacon is crisp tender. Remove from oven and allow to cool on paper towels.
