Bacon Burger on Brioche Buns

  • 2 medium red onions, thinly sliced              
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing              
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise              
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice              
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper              
  • 8 slices of thick-cut bacon (12 ounces)              
  • 3 pounds mixed ground chuck and ground sirloin    
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1 Tbsp Oregano        
  • 12 ounces brie, sliced              
  • 8 brioche burger buns, split              
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. On a rimmed  baking sheet, toss the onions with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and  roast until softened, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the  mayonnaise with the lemon juice. Gradually whisk in the remaining 1/4  cup of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large skillet, cook the bacon over moderately high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels and break each strip in half.
  4. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan.  Mix the Ground meat with the Worcestershire sauce and Oregano.  Form  the ground meat into eight patties. Season generously with salt and  pepper and brush with olive oil. Grill over moderately high heat until well-browned on the bottom, 5 - 7 minutes. Flip the burgers, mound the brie  on top and grill for 4 - 5 minutes longer, until the cheese is slightly  melted and the burgers are medium-rare.  Cook longer on both sides for meat doneness that is desired.
  5. Spread the lemon mayonnaise on the cut sides of the buns;  Place on Grill for 2 min to toast; set the burgers on the bottoms and top with the bacon and onions. Close the burgers and serve right away.
