  1. Lay the bacon flat on a plate and sprinkle 1/2 of the brown sugar over it.
  2. In a 12-inch skillet over medium heat cook the bacon for 4-5 minutes or until slightly crispy on one side.
  3. Flip over and sprinkle the rest of the brown sugar.
  4. Cook until very crisp, 4-6 more minutes.
  5. Lay the bacon on a plate and allow to cool.
  6. Chop up the bacon into small pieces.
  7. In a bowl add the beef, steak seasoning, cheese cubes, bacon pieces and maple syrup.
  8. Mix just until combined (do not overwork the meat.
  9. Form into patties gently indenting the top of one side to help prevent “doming”.
  10. In the same skillet that the bacon was cooked in, put the flame to medium.
  11. Add the patties to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes on one side. *Note I like my burgers medium. If you like them still mooing, cook for 3-4 minutes.
  12. Flip, reduce the flame to medium-low and cover with a lid for ~4-5 minutes. *Note I like my burgers medium. If you like them still mooing, cook 3-4 minutes.
  13. Test with a thermometer – beef should be 160-165F.


I kept the garnish simple – more melted cheddar on top and baby spinach. It needs nothing else.
