Uncle Sam’s Burger & Bowls created this bacony treat just in time for International Bacon Day. The California Burger joins the freshness of California-style cuisine with the versatility of bacon in the form of Onion Bacon Jam to evoke a savory and sweet experience unlike any other.
Chef Sean Thomes shares his recipe so you can make this delicious Burger at home (but don’t forget to visit Uncle Sam’s Burger & Bowls before this limited time offer is gone to get your hands on the real thing).
2. Place on bun with green leaf lettuce, aged white cheddar cheese, Onion Bacon Jam, and fresh avocado.
Onion Bacon Jam
1. On med-low heat render bacon for 10-15 minutes.
2. When bacon becomes slightly brown add the onions and garlic.
3. Continue to cook until the onions are translucent but not brown, approx. 10 minutes.
4. Once the onions are cooked add the remainder of the ingredients and cook until the sugar is dissolved and mixture is thick and gooey.
5. Keep the jam warm and serve.
Bacon tip…Don’t overcook the bacon! Too many people cook bacon too hot and too fast because there in a rush to get that luscious cured pork belly in their belly.
For me there are only two acceptable methods for coking bacon: in a pan at medium to low heat or in the oven laid out in strips with another pan on top for maximum crispness without being dry. For this recipe we start the bacon in a cold pan and render it slowly. When you do this properly you’ll have plenty of fat to sweat your onions in, thus adding full porky flavor.

About Chef Sean Thomes
Sean Thomes’s passion for food and cooking started early in life, when a friend of the family got him his first job working at a golf course club house. After graduating culinary school, he followed his stomach around the country working in fine dining and casual dining restaurants; everything from French-inspired bistro’s to BBQ joints. With the bulk of his career spent in an Asian-inspired, full-service restaurant, the transition to Uncle Sam’s Burgers and Bowls, creating bold Asian twists on American classics, seemed like the natural progression.
