Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 15 mins


  • ½ lb bacon rashers, cut into halves
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, sliced, or shredded
  • Cooking spray

Burger Assembly:

  • unsalted butter, at room temperature, for spreading
  • hamburger buns
  • mayonnaise
  • lettuce leaves, of your choice (mixed red curly leaf and green ice lettuce)
  • tomatoes, sliced into rings
  • yellow onions, sliced into rings
  • pickles, sliced
  • wooden skewers, if using

To serve:

  • potato fries


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, black pepper, and salt. Mix until evenly incorporated.
  2. Cover, and set aside in a chilled area to allow the proteins to firm up for at least an hour.
  3. While waiting, preheat your griddle and grease it with cooking spray.
  4. Portion roughly 3 ounces of patties with your beef, using your preferred mould to shape.
  5. Grill the patties for roughly 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until they reach desired doneness.
  6. Sprinkle roughly 1 ounce or 1 slice of cheese on the top of the burger and allow it to melt before removing the burger from the griddle.
  7. Spread roughly 1 tablespoon of butter on both burger bun halves and heat your burger buns on the pan or griddle to toast.
  8. Spread roughly 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise on each side of the buns.
  9. Place roughly ½ ounce of lettuce at the bottom half of the bun, then place 1 patty, followed by 2 pieces of bacon rashers. Repeat until you have 3 burger layers with bacon rashers in between.
  10. Lastly, top with roughly 1 ounce each of tomatoes and onions, and ¼ ounce of pickles.
  11. Cover with the top bun. You can also place a wooden skewer through the sandwich to hold it in place. Repeat until you have assembled all your burger patties in this way.
  12. Serve with roughly ¼ cup of potato fries per serving. Enjoy!
