Oatmeal Cheeseburgers with Bacon and Onion

Sorry, no picture on these because we were too busy eating them to take any. Just picture a homemade bacon cheeseburger, only with more stuff in the meat and sauteed onion with the bacon. And it's really good. As written, this recipe made three burgers, two large and one smaller. The smaller one was for Zaylee. Adjust the ingredient amounts and whatnot according to your needs.

1/2 pound ground beef
1/4 cup quick oats
1 medium egg
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 slices bacon, cut in thirds
1/4 cup diced onion
Sliced cheese
Burger stuff - buns, tomato, lettuce, ketchup, mayo, mustard, etc.

Squish together beef, oats, egg, sauce, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Form into three patties. Cook in skillet over medium-high heat until done. In the meantime, cook bacon and onion together over medium-high heat.

To serve, put burgers on plate. Top with cheese, then top each burger with two pieces bacon and some onion. Let that sit and melt the cheese for a while. Assemble burgers as desired.
