For the burger:
As a skillet preheats with oil, mix together the ground beef, egg, crushed croutons, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Shape the ground beef mixture into medium sized, oval patties and fry for 5 minutes on each side. In a separate skillet, fry the bacon. With the leftover bacon grease, caramelize the onions for 20 minutes.
To construct the burger, place a heaping tablespoon of the whiskey sauce onto a bun with a slice of cheese, bacon, ham, caramelized onion, tomato, pickle, and lettuce. Serve and enjoy!

For the sauce:
While the meat cooks, whisk together whiskey, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and cornstarch. Let simmer for ten minutes, or until sauce is thick.
