Ingredients

How to make it

  • For spicy ranch sauce:
  • Whisk all ingredients in medium bowl to blend. Season sauce with salt and pepper.
  • ****
  • For burgers:
  • Gently mix all ingredients in large bowl. Form mixture into eight 1/2- to 3/4-inch-thick patties. Place on small baking sheet. Cover and chill at least 2 hours and up to 1 day.
  • ****
  • For glaze:
  • Stir first 5 ingredients in small saucepan over medium heat until coffee is dissolved. Remove from heat. Whisk in butter. Season glaze to taste with salt and pepper.
  • ****
  • Working in batches if necessary, cook bacon in large skillet over medium-high heat until crisp and brown. Transfer bacon to paper towels to drain.
  • ****
  • Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat).
  • Cut onions into 1/4"-to 1/2" slices. Brush lightly on both sides with oil; salt and pepper. Set aside for grilling.
  • Spray grill rack with nonstick spray. Toast buns until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer buns, cut side up, to plates. Place lettuce on each bun bottom.
  • Grill burgers and onion slices 5 minutes, basting with glaze.
  • **NOTE: Watch onion slices for grill marks...carefully turn over - to keep slices intact - and grill on other side.
  • Turn burgers, baste with glaze, and grill until cooked to desired doneness, about 5 minutes longer for medium.
  • Press cheese atop each burger and allow cheese to melt. Place some sauce, then 1 burger on each bun bottom. Top each with 2 slices bacon, grilled onion slices and any other desired additional toppings. Cover with bun top.
  • Serve with remaining sauce.

    Hi Luna. I have finally had the time to try these burgers and they were a great success! A nice bite to the burgers and which were given an extra dimension with the glaze. The sauce was both spicy and refreshing and I loved it (I halved the amount of mayonnaise and sour creme though). This will be a new favourite, perfect for summer around the bbq. Thanks for the recipe Luna!

    Awesome burger, that is simply amazing. I like the worchestershire glaze. Love that stuff, can't say it, but love it. LOL This burger should be in a contest..Isn't it the Sonoma wine contest for best burger? You should enter and win.

    Thought the burgers would have been better for us without the chopped onion- the onion "rawness" was overwhelming. Next time we'll try it without. Good recipe though- thanks :)

    I think I'll make this tonight. I have most of the ingredients, unfortunately not jalepenos, but I'm sure I can fudge it to make the burgers turn out mostly like your recipe. Do you have any suggestions?
