  • 1 small handful Lettuce
  • 1 whole Bun


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Heat stove top skillet to medium.
  3. Use hands to blend ground beef with chopped bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped fresh chives, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt & pepper. Mold into a ball.

  7. Turn heat to low. Add shredded cheddar cheese, red onion rings, and bacon basket weave to burger. Place lid onto skillet. Wait 2 to 3 minutes before removing lid. Remove burger from heat and set aside.

  9. Remove from oven.
  10. Plate burger atop bun. Add pickle, tomato, and lettuce. Serve immediately.


For a delicious Tex-Mex twist, mix 1/4 to 1/2 cup diced jalapeño into the patties before cooking. Top with fresh sliced avocado and a twist of lime. Enjoy!
