680g beef mince
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp hot sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 strips streaky bacon, diced
1/2 onion, chopped
110g grated sharp Cheddar
4 hamburger buns or baps
Lettuce, tomato, pickles for garnish
1) In a bowl combine the beef, garlic, hot sauce, salt and pepper, to taste, being careful not to over mix.

2) Warm a skillet over a medium heat and fry the bacon until crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Keep the skillet on the heat and fry a pinch of the beef in the bacon fat to test seasoning. Adjust the seasoning, if needed, then form 8 even thin burgers, about 0.25cm thick and set aside.

3) Saute the onions in the bacon fat the skillet until tender, 5 mins. Place the onions and bacon in a bowl with the cheese. Form a spoonful of bacon-cheese mixture into a ball, then place in the centre of 4 of the burgers. Top each with another burger and seal the edges.

4) Griddle the burgers over a medium-high heat, flipping once until the desired doneness is reached, approximately 4 mins each side for medium. Serve in the buns with the garnishes. Alternatively, in a medium skillet over a medium-high heat, sear the burgers 4 mins on each side.
