Burger with Bourbon Bacon & Onion Jam

Cook Time: 20 MIN, SERVES: 4


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 medium white onion, diced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley

  • 1½ pounds ground chuck

  • 1 healthy pinch of kosher salt

  • 4 thick slices of aged white Cheddar

  • 4 brioche hamburger buns

  • ½ cup Bourbon Bacon Jam

  • ½ cup Sweet & Spicy Double Onion Jam


  1. Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the diced onions and cook, stirring often, until deeply caramelized, about 10 minutes. Remove the onions from the pan and let cool. Mix the cooled onions, parsley, and salt into the ground chuck. Divide the mixture into fourths, and then form into loose patties, about 1-inch thick.

  2. Heat a large grill or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Season each side of the patties with salt and pepper. Pour a thin film of oil into the pan. When the oil just starts to smoke, add the burgers. For medium burgers, cook for 3 minutes, then flip, add the cheese, and cook for 3 minutes more.

  3. While the burgers cook, lightly toast the buns. Smear the buns with about 2 tablespoons of Sweet & Spicy Double Onion Jam, 2 tablespoons of Bourbon Bacon Jam, and add the burgers. Serve with lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles.
