  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Cook and stir onion and mushrooms in melted butter until the onions are very tender and beginning to brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle brown sugar over the mixture and continue cooking until the onions caramelize, 5 to 10 minutes more; remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Mix ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, horseradish, steak sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, dried onion, salt, and black pepper in a bowl; shape into 4 patties about 6 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick.
  4. Cook burgers on preheated grill until completely browned, about 3 minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium and cook burgers another 3 minutes per side, topping each burger with a slice of pepperjack cheese for the last minute of cooking.
  5. Top each burger with about 1/4 of the mushroom and onion mixture, 3 pieces of bacon, and 1 tablespoon guacamole to serve.

excellent hamburgers even without the sugar, bacon and cheese. I used gluten free bread crumbs and it made absolutely no difference in the taste. even those on a special diet can enjoy these.

This has such great flavor and the toppings magnificent, but Hubs and I both agree it would be much better prepared as meatloaf and then proceeding with the recipe and slicing it for sandwiches....

An odd combination, but it works! I used venison burger and it turned out very well. The meat was still a little dry, but the egg and cracker crumbs helped pull it together into a patty that c...

Go ahead and double the recipe because everyone wanted two. These were fantastic! I will be saving this recipe. I added the mushroom and onion mix to the ground beef and cooked it that way. I al...

I'm so sorry to give this a low rating. Made this over the weekend, followed the recipe exactly. We both didn't care for it, it was like the burger was too soft and meatloaf like instead of bu...

never tried horseradish in ground beef before, it was awesome. going to try it with other favourites like meat loaf.

Way to go Idaho!
