Gobbling down burgers is what I enjoy the most, when I am hungry. The recipe for the western burger is what I am going to share today, so you can do the same. Anyone can make this sandwich within 30 minutes.

The western burger is all about amazing flavors with crunchy onion rings. It can be served as an evening snack. You will love the tanginess of this recipe.

To make a Western burger, mix bacon and beef in a bowl and make patties. Cook the patties for 8 to 10 minutes on a rill. Meanwhile, fry onion rings in a frying pan.

Layer the buns with cooked patties, BBQ sauce, cheese, and onion. Your burger is ready.

For evenly cooked burgers, make an indentation in the middle of each burger prior to grilling. Broil these patties, if looking for another way. Alternatively, you can add onion rings without frying.

For the best flavors, you can also cook the buns on a grill, until brown and crispy. You can also add spices of your choice in patties. Make sure, patties are cooked well for more beefy flavor.

In order to make this burger perfectly, check out step-by-step instructions and ingredients that I have used to make this recipe. Also, if you like the recipe, don’t forget to share it with your friends and family.

What Ingredients Will You Need To Make Western Burger?

  • Ground Beef – I have made the patties from ground beef for a super flavorful, and juicy burger.
  • Bacon – Cooked and crumbled bacon will add a salty, umami, and sweet taste to the burger.
  • BBQ Sauce – Squeeze barbecue sauce on the patties to add a sweetness to the burger, giving it rich and thick flavors.
  • Cheddar Cheese – Shred your cheese instead of buying the pre-shredded one to add a kick of sharp and pungent flavor. 
  • Vegetable Oil – Brown the onion rings and grill the patties until juicy with a splash of olive oil.
  • Onion Rings – Fry the onion rings until golden brown to give an ultra-toasty, salty, and umami punch taste to the Western burger.
  • Hamburger Buns – Use hamburger buns as they are far more filling than slices of bread and tend to make sandwiches more appealing.

Steps To Make Western Burger

1. Shape Up The Patties

Start by mincing and crumbling beef and bacon. Cut your onion into rings before you start frying. Simply cut the onion into ¼-inch slices, then use your hands to separate the slices into rings.

Take a bowl and put minced and crumbled beef and bacon. Mix together and divide them into four equal portions.

Make the patties using your hands to grill them evenly. After shaping the beef and bacon mixture into a 1/2-inch-thick by 3-inch-wide patty, place it on a grill.

Cook the patties for 8 to 10 minutes on each side until brown.

2. Western Burger Is Ready

Meanwhile, take a frying pan and heat some oil. Once heated, fry onion rings until it gets golden brown.

Take a hamburger bun and slice it in half. Put the cooked patties, onion rings, grated cheese, and pour the BBQ sauce on the bottom layer.

Cover it with the other slice and serve it with a bottle of coke.

How Will Western Burger Look And Taste Like?

Western burger is made with thick and juicy burgers, topped with thick bacon, homemade onion strings, and BBQ sauce. It has the most delicious flavor and texture combo, that is extremely satiating.

Besides the usual seasoning, onion imparts flavor to the burger. The BBQ will help bind the meat filet and the bun giving the burger a creaminess and a bit of zing.
