Bacon and Onion Cheeseburgers

Article by ARB 4X4 Culture


  • 4 burger patties
  • 8 bacon rashers
  • 2 large onions
  • Toothpicks
  • 1 bottle of your favourite BBQ sauce
  • 4 burger buns
  • 4 slices smoky American cheese
  • Pickles (optional)
  • Burger sauce (optional)
  • Camp oven with trivet


Trim the rind off each bacon rasher and set aside. Peel and trim the ends of the onions and slice in half both ways (leaving you with four sets of half onion rings per onion). Wrap the edge of each patty with four onion ring halves. Wrap each burger in bacon as best you can so that the patty is fully enclosed, using toothpicks to hold the bacon in place. Place the patties on a trivet in a camp oven and sit the camp oven on coals outside of the fire with more coals on top.

Bake for 40 minutes, replacing coals if required. Remove the camp oven lid and cover the burgers with BBQ sauce. Place the lid back on the camp oven and bake for a further five minutes. Remove the camp oven lid and remove all toothpicks (the caramelised BBQ sauce should hold the bacon together). Top each burger with a piece of cheese and replace the lid. While the cheese is melting, cut the burger buns in half and toast the inside half over the campfire.

Remove the burgers from the camp oven and place inside toasted buns with pickles and burger sauce.
