Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Burgers

These were very good burgers though I think the meat needs more seasoning.

Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Burgers
Michael Symon--the Chew

1/2 pound bacon cooked and crumbled
1 (5-ounce) package of soft herbed cheese (softened)Beth used 4 oz cream cheese and added minced garlic and Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons butter
2 yellow onions (peeled, thinly sliced)
1 and 1/2 pounds ground chuck
2 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt (to taste)

Break bacon into 1-inch pieces and remove to a large bowl. Add softened cheese and stir to combine thoroughly, refrigerate until cold and firm, about 15 minutes.   Divide into 6  sections and form into a disk.

In a large saute pan over medium heat, melt the butter and add the onions. Season with salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions have caramelized, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Preheat a griddle over medium-high heat.

Form the burgers --make 12 think patties.  Place a section of cheese on top of 6 of the thin patties. Top with the remaining 6 patties and use your fingers to crimp and seal the edges. Season both sides with salt. Cook until golden brown and crusty, about 4 minutes per side.

To Serve: Top the burgers with caramelized onions and the condiments of your choice. Serve immediately.
