serves four

8 slices bacon
1 pound (85/15) ground beef
seasoning salt
4 slices pepper jack cheese
1 red onion, sliced
green leaf lettuce
prepared guacamole
4 hamburger buns

Preheat your outdoor grill. Cook bacon slices over medium heat until crispy. About 5-7 minutes. Transfer to paper towel lined plate. Set aside. Portion the ground beef into 4 equal parts. Roll each part into a ball and then gently press into patties. Sprinkle each patty with seasoning salt. Cook burgers over medium heat. About 4-5 minutes per side for medium-well. At the last minute, place cheese slices on top. Cook until cheese melts slightly. (Note: You can also toast the hamburger buns at this point if you like.) To assemble the hamburger, place hamburger on bottom of bun, place red onion rings and lettuce on top. Spread guacamole on top bun and place on top. Serve.
