Bacon is one of those secret ingredients that make everything taste better – especially burgers. A little goes a long way when you crumble it into the meat when making the patties. You don’t have to pile it high on the grilled burgers – unless you want to!
Prepare burgers, then lightly coat a large frying pan with oil and set over medium heat. Add burgers. Cover and cook until well browned and firm when pressed, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium-low if burgers are browned before they’re cooked through. Tuck into crusty buns and top with your fave fixings.
If using a slice of bacon in place of bits, place on a plate lined with a paper towel, then cover with another paper towel. Microwave on medium until crispy, 2 to 3 minutes. Then crumble into small pieces.
