Truffle Burgers with Caramelized Onions and Bacon (Whole 30)

Fridays at our house are burger nights! I love to mix up traditional burgers with fun flavors, like truffles. I admit, when I hear truffles I’m a little intimidated, but fear not truffles aren’t just for fine dining. This recipe calls for truffle salt, I use Trader Joe’s or this one from Amazon. Opt for extra lean ground beef to save some points and a lower point bacon. I personally love Aldi brand center cut bacon! Points may vary depending on what kind of bacon you use. I top this burger with caramelized onions, bacon, and a roasted garlic aioli– let me tell you it is divine!

 

Truffle Burgers with Caramelized Onions and Bacon

3 sp per burger (without aioli), makes 4 burgers

 

Ingredients

For the burgers:

16 oz extra lean ground beef

1 tsp truffle salt

1 tsp onion powder

Pinch of fresh ground pepper

Toppings:

4 slices low point bacon

1/2 tsp coconut oil

1/2 large onion, sliced

4 TB Mayo (I use homemade)

2 cloves garlic, roasted  and pressed or finely minced

Squeeze of lemon juice

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions

  1. Begin by making your toppings, in a medium skillet on medium heat, melt coconut oil. Add onions and allow to carmelize on medium-low or low for about 45 minutes. Stirring occasionally. Fry bacon to desired crunchiness, set aside.
  2. For the aioli, combine mayo, roasted garlic, squeeze of lemon, salt and pepper and mix together. You’ll have some left over!
  3. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, truffle salt, and onion powder. Combine with a fork, but don’t over work it. Form into 4 equal sized patties using your hands. Press your thumb into the middle to make a small indentation in the burger.
  4. You can grill or pan fry these burgers. Grill method: place the burger on a medium to medium high grill and grill for 5 minutes per side for medium. Pan fry method: in a large skillet on medium-high for 5-6 minutes per side.
  5. Wrap burgers in lettuce wraps or buns, top with 1 tsp aioli, 1 slice of bacon, and carmelized onions.

 

Enjoy!
