  • 8 Slices Daily’s® Original Extra Thick-Cut Bacon (bacon fat reserved)
  • 4 each Hamburger rolls, split
  • 4 each American or Cheddar cheese slices
  • 4-8 each Bibb lettuce leaves

  2. Heat 12-inch skillet (or griddle) over high heat. Place bacon wrapped burger patties and cook, turning occasionally, until crusted. (Approx. 5-6 minutes cook time on each side – total).
  3. Top with cheese and continue cooking until cheese is melted and burgers register 135 degrees for medium or 145 degrees for medium well. Transfer to a large plate.
  4. Brush hamburger rolls on inside surfaces with rendered bacon fat and set aside.
  5. Wipe out skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add burger buns and toast until golden, about 3 minutes.
  6. Spread burger sauce on both sides of burger buns. Place patties on each bottom bun. Top with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and bun tops.


To make the burger sauce
