It’s amazing how simple this meal is, and how the simplest ingredients produced the best meals! The best part is this is a 30 mins meal! The husband came back from work and took a bite into his burger and sunk into his seat… saying this is one of the best thing to come home to. A juicy burger with melty cheese oozing out as you sink your teeth into it. There’s no need to salt the patties a whole lot as the bacon will flavor the patty as it cooks. So make sure you under salt your patties when you season it!
