serves four

4 slices bacon, chopped
1 pound 90% lean ground beef
3 tablespoons crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 large tomato, thickly sliced
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
4 whole-wheat burger buns

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp. Drain, transfer to a small plate, and set aside to let cool. Form beef into eight thin, round patties. Divide bacon and gorgonzola between four of the patties, then top each with one of the remaining patties. Press the edges of each burger closed to seal well. Season burgers all over with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat, or cook in a large skillet over medium-high heat, until desired doneness, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Top burgers with tomatoes and onions and serve on buns.
