1 lb. ground beef (I used 85% lean)
1/2 c. shredded cheese (I used the pre-shredded Kraft Mexican mix)
1/4 c. crumbled bacon (I used Hormel Real Bacon Bits in the purple envelope)
Sliced cheese (I like cheddar; you should use whatever you like)
Put beef, shredded cheese, and bacon in a large bowl. Mix (use your hands — it’s okay to get dirty) until thoroughly combined. Divide mixture into 4 parts. Press each part into a patty approximately 4″ across and 1/2″ thick. I found that the lid from an old quart yogurt container gave me perfectly sized burgers. Grill to desired doneness (you could also cook these on the stovetop or broil them — however you like to cook your burgers should work fine). Place cheese slice on top of patty a couple of minutes before removing from heat. Place patty on bun. Enjoy!
