Ingredients

  • The Sauce:

  • 2

    teaspoons Tabasco sauce or 2 teaspoons hot sauce (optional -- leave this out if your family doesn't like hot n spicy burgers and increase the Worcestershire sauce to 3 teaspoons)

  • 2

    teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2

    teaspoons ground ginger

  • 2

    teaspoons dry mustard

  • 1/4

    cup molasses

  • 1/4

    cup honey

  • 1/2

    cup dark brown sugar

  • 1

    cup ketchup

  • The Burgers:

  • 2

    lbs lean ground beef

  • 8

    ounces (1 cup) cheddar cheese, shredded

  • 1/4

    lb bacon, cooked crisp and chopped into small pieces

  • 1

    tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1/3

    cup onion, chopped

  • 1/2

    cup quick oats

  • 1

    egg, beaten

    dash salt and pepper

Directions

Preheat grill to medium. Combine ketchup, dark brown sugar, honey, molasses, dry mustard, ginger, Worrcestershire sauce, Tabasco if you're using this optional ingredient, and the salt and pepper to a saucepan. Bring to a boil and then set sauce aside; reserve 1 cup of sauce to baste the burgers with later. In a bowl, mix the egg, oats, onion, garlic powder, cooked bacon, cheddar cheese and ground beef, and 1/2 cup or a bit more of the reserved sauce, to moisten the meat. Make eight hamburger patties from this mixture. Grill until cooked to your liking. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, baste burgers with the remaining sauce. Serve with your favorite toppings, such as lettuce, tomato, dill pickle, or sliced avacado.
