Bacon Blue Cheese Burger

We went to this little pub in Gettysburg called Appalachian Brew Pub the other night and I had the most fabulous burger I've ever tasted!  And of course, I couldn't resist making our own homemade version!  The results were SPECTACULAR!  The kids wanted 5 more burgers!  LOL!

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 large vidalia onion, halved and sliced
4 oz precooked bacon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1.25 pounds ground beef
salt to taste
lettuce for wraps (or hamburger rolls if desired)
1 container blue cheese crumbles
1 large gala apple, cored and sliced in rings
2 large jalapeno peppers, diced

1.  Form patties out of ground beef and cook to taste on the grill.  Sprinkle salt on burgers as they cook, if desired.
2.  While burgers are cooking, in a large skillet, saute onion, and brown sugar in olive oil.  After about 5 minutes when the onions are starting to get soft, add bacon and continue to cook until onions are completely soft.
3.  When onions are soft and burgers are cooked to your liking, assemble burgers.  Place blue cheese on bottom half of roll.  Top with burger, then onions/bacon, then apple slice or two, and then top roll.  Top with jalapeno peppers, if desired.
