Bacon, Onion Cheese Stuffed Burgers

Okay because I consider you guys close friends, I will admit it. I don't normally make my own burgers. We buy the frozen already made ground chuck patties at Costco. They're easy and they're delicious. Nothing says summertime like hamburgers on grill, corn on the cob and baked beans. On this particular night, I did make my own burgers. These were delicious. The only thing I will do differently next time is add more stuffing.

Bacon, Onion and Cheese Stuffed Burgers
Adapted from Food Network

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon hot sauce (recommended: Frank's Red Hot)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 piece of canadian bacon, diced
1/2 onion, chopped
1 cup grated sharp Cheddar
4 burger buns
Lettuce, tomato, pickles for garnish
Preheat grill to medium.

In a bowl combine beef, garlic, hot sauce, salt and pepper, to taste, being careful not to over mix. Form 8 even thin patties, about 1/2-inch thick and set aside. Saute onions in olive oil in skillet until tender, 5 minutes. Place onions and bacon in a bowl with cheese. Form a spoonful of bacon-cheese mixture into a ball, then place in the center of 4 patties. Top each with another patty and seal the edges. Grill burgers over medium-high heat, flipping once until desired doneness is reached, approximately 4 minutes each side for medium. Serve in buns with garnishes. Alternative: In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, sear the burgers 4 minutes on each side.
