Prepare ahead of time 8 slices of thick bacon. Set aside on paper towel to drain excess bacon fat.
In a large bowl mix 1lb. Hamburger and salt and white pepper to taste.
Add 1 tablespoon ketchup and ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard, mix well.
Form 4 burgers into round even shapes, then to each burger add and mix completely 1
slice of thick cooked bacon broken into small pieces, reform burgers.
Cook under medium heat till thoroughly cooked. While they are cooking; Place 8-10 medium sized mushrooms (sliced or stems and pieces work) with half a yellow onion in skillet with two tablespoons of butter and cook until onions become caramelized.
Now arrange cooked burgers on broiler safe tray and broil till tops are crispy (careful not to burn or get overdone.) Only takes a few minutes on high broil.
Place burgers on serving plates and wrap each in remaining 4 pieces of bacon (1 each.) Place a single slice of your favorite cheese on top of each bacon burger.
Pour mushrooms, onions, and butter proportionately over each burger and serve.
Can be served alone or as an open face sandwich or on a bun. Drain the butter from mushrooms and onions if you wish to serve on a bun as a normal hamburger. Goes great with a salad or baked beans.
