Burgers are something that everyone probably has on their menus at least once a week. My favorite thing to do is change them up from week to week so our family doesn’t get burnt out. My new Mushroom Onion Bacon Burgers has transformed our weekly burger game. Not to mention, these delicious little babies are Keto, Whole30, Paleo and Dairy-Free.
Our favorite way to cook a burger is smoking them on the Traeger. If you don’t have a smoker, no worries, throw them in a pan, in the oven or grill of choice. You really can’t go wrong with how you cook them because they are seasoned to perfections and come our juicy and flavorful every single. time.
To top, I slathered each burger with my creamy Mac’s Awesome Sauce along with sauteed mushrooms and onions and a crispy piece of bacon. To keep it healthy, I wrap each burger with butter lettuce and it so good and crisp you won’t even miss this bun.
My Mac’s Awesome Sauce is so full of flavor and texture and is the perfect addition with these seasoned ground beef patties. If you miss cheese on your burgers, then this is the perfect substitute that gives it a cheesy feel.
How to use these Mushroom Onion Bacon Burgers for meal prep?
Making a big batch of these burgers is a great way to save time during a busy week. I love adding cooked burgers to a glass Tupperware container and use them in different ways throughout the week. They are great on top of a salad, in a lettuce wrap or just plain with a side of veggies.
If you are wanting to take this exact recipe for lunch, store the burger along with the mushroom and onion mixture in a Tupperware, place the lettuce and bacon slice in separate paper towels and add each to a baggie, and store the sauce in a small container. Heat up the burger and onion mixture then build your burger with the lettuce , , bacon and sauce.
