Star chef Tyler Florence ups the burger ante with a blend of ground meats topped with thick-cut bacon and triple-cream cheese.
Servings: 8
Active Time:
Total Time: 40 minutes
Ingredients
2 medium red onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground pepper
8 slices of thick-cut bacon (12 ounces)
3 pounds mixed ground chuck and ground sirloin
12 ounces Brie, sliced
8 brioche burger buns, split
Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 400°. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the onions with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and roast until softened, about 20 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the lemon juice. Gradually whisk in the remaining . cup of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

3. In a large skillet, cook the bacon over moderately high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels and break each strip in half. 4. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Form the ground meat into eight patties. Season generously with salt and pepper and brush with olive oil. Grill over moderately high heat until well-browned on the bottom, 5 minutes. Flip the burgers, mound the Brie on top and grill for 4 minutes longer, until the cheese is slightly melted and the burgers are medium-rare.

5. Spread the lemon mayonnaise on the cut sides of the buns; set the burgers on the bottoms and top with the bacon and onions. Close the burgers and serve right away.
