1 onion, sliced
2 hot peppers
5 Medjool dates, pits removed and sliced
4 slices of bacon, cooked
4 hamburger patties
4 burger buns
4 slices of smoked Gouda cheese
Butter for caramelizing


Step 1: Caramelize the Onions and Dates! 

In a skillet, melt some butter over medium heat. Add the sliced onions and cook them until they turn golden brown and caramelized, stirring occasionally. Towards the end of caramelization, toss in the sliced Medjool dates and stir until they are slightly heated and combined with the onions. Remove from heat.

Step 2: Grill the Hamburgers! Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. 

Season your hamburger patties with your favorite spices. Grill the patties to your desired level of doneness. During the last few minutes of grilling, place a slice of smoked Gouda cheese on each patty and allow it to melt.

Step 3: Toast the Buns! While your patties are grilling, lightly toast the burger buns on the grill or in a toaster. This step adds a nice crunch to your burger.

Step 4: Assemble the Burger! 

Start by placing a cheesy hamburger patty on the bottom half of each toasted bun. Top each patty with a generous portion of the caramelized onion and date mixture. This combination adds a delightful sweetness to each bite. Add a slice of cooked bacon to each burger, giving it that perfect smoky flavor. Finally, complete your blissful burger by covering it with the top bun.
