“Found on burger with Caramelized Onion and Bacon Jam sounds phenomenal and I plan on making them this weekend. Posting here for safekeeping. Times are estimated and cook time assumes bacon and caramelized onions are being cooked simultaneously. Edited 30 May 2011: These are wonderful! Made them for a Memorial Day weekend BBQ and everyone scarfed them down like there was no tomorrow! I added 1 T Worcestershire sauce to the burgers before mixing and was generous with the salt and pepper. The Caramelized Onion and Bacon Jam would be fantastic on ANY burger or sandwich!”
