That’s it. I’m done. There’s absolutely no need for me to ever make any other hamburger patties besides the ones on these Tex-Mex bacon cheeseburgers. Sure, the cheese sauce is amazing (it’s actually a bit beyond amazing, and would also be fantastic on hot dogs), but the patties are the star of the show. Any burger patty I make in the future will be just like these. Tender, juicy, smoky, and incredibly tasty. With a bit of a kick. Tremendous. And not meatloaf-y, either. You know the kind of burgers I’m talking about. They’re more like meatloaf than burger. Don’t worry, these do not cross the line into meatloaf-ness.

Flavor-Packed Patties. Messy Sauce. Fantastic!

Grating onions can take a bit of time, but it’s well worth the effort on these Tex-Mex bacon cheeseburgers. Although you can sort of duplicate the texture by pureeing the onions in a blender, I’ve found it’s best to get out a box grater, grab an onion, and just get to work.

I like to use a burger press when I make burgers. It, in combination with some patty papers, enables me to crank out a whole bunch of equally-sized burger patties in no time at all with little cleanup.
