Cars Inspired BBQ Bacon Cowboy Burger

This post is part of an amazing burger grill giveaway hosted by GirlCarnivore but the burger epicness is all my own.

This Cars Inspired Cowboy Burger has all the classic flavors of BBQ sauce, crispy bacon, and crunchy onions for a fun dinner and a movie night.

One of my all time favorite burgers has been this cowboy burger. There is just something hearty and comforting about burgers in the first place but then you combine it with things like bacon, BBQ sauce, and onion rings and it just knocks it out of the park.

Now, if you are used to picking these up from the drive-thru and felt like you couldn’t make them at home, stop worrying because if you can grill a hamburger you can make these burgers.

Pair these burgers up with the Cars movie for a fun kid friendly movie night!

Ingredients you need to make a cowboy burger:

  • Buns
  • Hamburger patties
  • Bacon
  • Onion rings
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Substitutions

  • To cut down on cooking time, and avoid having the oven on during the summer, you can substitute crispy onions for the onion rings.
  • For a spicier burger substitute crispy jalapenos for the onion rings and pepper jack cheese for the cheddar cheese.
  • This burger is also incredibly good with toasted sourdough bread instead of the bun, or use a garlic jalapeno bun for some extra southwest flavor.
  • If you’re feeling extra ambitious, try making your own onion rings.

How To Make BBQ Bacon Cowboy Burger:

  1. Preheat oven to temperature recommended on your onion ring package. Follow package directions for baking onion rings.
  2. While, oven is preheating, preheat your grill to medium high heat. Once hot, add burgers and cook for 2-3 minutes per side.
  3. If adding cheese, add it during the last minute of grilling on the second side.
  4. Spread 2 Tbsp of BBQ sauce per bun half. Top bottom bun with burger, bacon, onion rings, and then the bun top.
  5. Enjoy your burger! It’s gonna be messy.

Tips and Tricks

  • If you are unsure about if your burger is done or not, investing in a good thermometer will help cut out the guess work. I love my Thermapen for quick and accurate readings.
  • Toast your buns (the burger buns silly!) to prevent getting a soggy bottom on your burger. Lightly toast them on the grill or in a toaster oven for 2-3 minutes.
