Juicy Lucy with Whiskey Grilled Onions

Juicy Lucy with Whiskey Grilled Onions

When I woke up today, the weather was abnormally warm so I decided to go for a hike. Whenever I go out in the sun or go hiking, I always get an appetite for a burger even though I am not really a burger fan. Add the fact that I picked up a bunch of ground bison the other day because I have never cooked with it and I was intrigued. This was really good that even a non-burger person like myself would definitely go back for. And incredibly juicy so much that it reminded me of those Carl's Jr. commercials. I will definitely be looking into making different things with bison after this.
These can very easily be made with beef as well and I am sure they will be just as delicious.
The choice of cheese is definitely up to you.
I used a homemade Barbeque Sauce. This is an ingredient that I used to always buy and not make myself. Do yourself a favour and make it, you will thank me later.

  2. 1 Onion
  3. 1 Tablespoon Whiskey

    When the patties are done cooking, place the patties on the Hamburger Buns, top with Grilled Onions, any other additions (sliced Tomato, lettuce, etc.), and condiments (I usually just use more Barbeque Sauce).
