For Bacon Jam:

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the chopped bacon until it becomes crispy. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and set it aside on a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. In the same skillet, add the thinly sliced onions and cook over medium-low heat until they caramelize, about 15-20 minutes.
  3. Add minced garlic to the onions and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  4. Return the cooked bacon to the skillet with the onions and garlic. Add brown sugar, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, and brewed coffee. Stir well to combine.
  5. Simmer the mixture over low heat, stirring occasionally, until it thickens to a jam-like consistency. This will take about 30-40 minutes.
  6. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Allow the bacon jam to cool before transferring it to a jar or airtight container.

For Grilled Cheeseburgers:

  1. Preheat your grill or stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Divide the ground beef into 4 equal portions and shape them into burger patties. Season each patty with salt and black pepper.
  3. Grill the burgers for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until they reach your desired level of doneness.
  4. In the last minute of cooking, add a slice of cheese on top of each burger and let it melt.
  5. Toast the hamburger buns on the grill for a minute or until they are lightly browned.
  6. Assemble the burgers by spreading a generous amount of bacon jam on the bottom half of each bun. Place a cheese-topped burger on top, and add lettuce, tomato, or other desired toppings.
  7. Top with the other half of the bun and secure with a toothpick if needed.
  8. Serve the Bacon Jam Grilled Cheeseburgers immediately and enjoy!
