  • Preheat your barbecue to 300º C (575º F).
  • Combine the ingredients for the patties and refrigerate until the BBQ comes to temperature.
  • Meanwhile fry the mushrooms in butter and freshly cracked black pepper until golden. Caramelise the onions in butter over low heat until sweet and golden brown (do not allow to burn). Fry the bacon and set aside.
  • Form 8 equal sized patties and grill on each side for about 4 minutes or until desired doneness is obtained.
  • Remove the meat from the grill, cover and let rest 10 minutes.
  • In the meantime, heat the béchamel to a simmer and add in the cheese.
  • Layer one patty on the bun and top with bacon and mushrooms. Place the second patty on top and top with the caramelised onions and cheese sauce.
