You can't smell our onion breath through your computer, can you? We're not sorry, anyhow: Snuffer's Restaurant & Bar's new Smoked Onion Bacon Cheddar Burger is a stunner. 

GuideLive had the honor of picking Snuffer's newest burger by taste-testing the five finalists. We take these burger jobs very seriously.

Beginning in January, this new burger -- topped with bacon, sharp cheddar, grilled onions, fried onions, lettuce and roasted garlic aioli, on a toasted onion bun -- will be available for one month at all Snuffer's locations. The name of the burger is yet to be determined.

The burger was chosen as the best entry in a list of more than 800 burgers -- 800, y'all! -- that customers submitted to Snuffer's in October. Chefs narrowed the 800 burgers to 20 favorites recipes. Then that's where we came in.

Our esteemed team of GuideLive tasters sampled all five burger finalists and picked the beefy winner.

The recipe comes from "Dee R. from Rockwall." She wins $500 in Snuffer's gift cards. You go, Dee!

The burger is basically a beefed-up bacon cheeseburger. It's an oniony, garlicky burst of flavor. It received an average 3.9 points out of 5 points from our team of 12 tasters.

"I want an autographed picture of the person who made that burger," said our TV writer Dawn Burkes.

Hey Dee, you available? You're about to be famous.

Each Snuffer's burger was rated on a scale of 1 to 5 for taste, creativity and presentation.

The burger won out over a Shiner-onion burger; a gouda-bacon burger; a burger topped with pulled pork baptized in barbecue sauce; and a turkey burger with coleslaw and thousand island dressing. (See photos of each below.) The creators of each of those burgers will receive $50 in Snuffer's gift cards. Because they were good. They just weren't the bacon-cheddar-onion-garlic 'splosion.

We had a blast picking the winner of Snuffer's first-ever "create your own burger" contest. If you order the Smoked Onion Bacon Cheddar Burger in January, be sure to get a side of those addictive cheddar fries.

Snuffer's has 11 restaurants in the North Texas area. Thanks to our team of taste testers: Marilyn Bishkin, Sara Burgos, Dawn Burkes, Norma Cavazos, Aaron Colen, Kim Oglethorpe, Britton Peele, Ann Pinson, Christine Ricciardi and Shannon Sutlief .
