  • 2 lbs Ground chuck beef
  • 1 tbsp Onion powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Ground black pepper
  • 8 oz Blue cheese, sliced
  • 12 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked
  • 1 cup Baby Spinach leaves
  • 6 Hamburger buns
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 Large yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan on medium heat.
  2. Add the onions, stir to coat and cook without stirring for 10-12 minutes.
  3. Flip the onions so the ones on the bottom are now on top, and cook for another 10-12 minutes.
  4. Flip one more time, lower heat and allow onions to caramelized until completely brown — about 15 minutes — gently stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside. They can be made ahead of time reheated before you make the burgers.
  5. In a bowl, mix the ground beef, onion powder, salt and pepper until just combined, careful not to overmix, or your patties will be tough.
  6. Divide into six equal portions and form patties, without pressing too hard. They should be uniform in thickness.
  7. Preheat your grill or cast-iron skillet to high heat.
  8. Add burger patties and cover with the lid.
  9. When burgers lift up easily, about 2 minutes, flip, add enough blue cheese to cover completely, close lid and cook on the other side for another 2-3 minutes for medium to medium-rare doneness.
  10. Remove patties and transfer to buns. Top with warmed caramelized onions, baby spinach and bacon and serve immediately.
