  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 24 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 12 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 hamburger buns


  • In a large skillet, cook bacon; drain, reserving fat. Crumble bacon and set aside. Leaving enough bacon grease in the pan to coat the pan, saute the chopped onion until transparent. Add 2 cans tomato sauce and pepper, simmer uncovered. In a separate skillet, brown ground beef, drain before adding onion and tomato mixture. Simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stir in crumbled bacon and stir for 1 minute. Reduce heat to very low and stir in cheese. A third can of tomato sauce can be added if desired.
