1/4 c. chopped medium cheddar cheese

In a small skillet, over medium heat, cook bacon slices till done. Lay the
bacon onto paper towels Add onion to bacon fat and cook until onion is
softened. Remove onion and place in a small sieve. Allow excess grease to
drain from the onion.
When bacon is drained, chop the slices and combine with the onion.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, egg, and chili sauce, salt
and pepper. Mix well. Add mushroom caps, cheese, and then bacon and onion
mixture. Mix together. When ingredients are well mixed, form into patties.
Cook patties on a hot grill to desired doneness.
Serve on lightly toasted hamburger buns slathered with Dijon Mayonnaise.
