White Cheddar Bacon Stout Burger w/ Fried Red Onion Petals on Pretzel Buns

I’m kinda at this weird seasonal limbo stage of not knowing what to do with myself . On one hand I’m soooo happy summers almost over but I’m also not trying to jump the gun on winter foods. Winter isn’t even in the horizon we gotta get through fall, y’all. So I find myself wanting hot hearty dishes but without the right season or environment it just isn’t completely right. But I’m so over summer. So here in limbo I like to enjoy burgers LOADED, wings temperature can vary, and slaw… see other posts. All the while dreaming of fresh baked bread, chowders and chili’s and chicken fried steak. Try it out and let me know what you think!


  • 2lb Ground Beef
  • 6oz Guniess stout beer
  • 1/4lb bacon, minced
  • Salt

  • 1.5-2c white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 medium red onion, segmented

  • Add stout beer to ground beef and bacon and combine. Form pattie at1/4-1/2lb Season both sides with salt and pepper.
  • In a hot cast iron pan sear both sides for 3-5 minutes depending on desired doneness.
