Thanks, Mom!
Recipe Details

1 pound ground beef

1 pound Thick cut bacon, put in freezer

4 slices cheddar cheese

2 Avocados, smashed

1 Onion, grilled

1/4 cup Sriracha & mayo combined to make a spicy mayo sauce. Ratio to your preference.

1 package KING'S HAWAIIAN Original Hawaiian Sweet Hamburger Buns

Step 1
Finely chop frozen bacon. (Freezing your bacon makes it easier to chop. If you have a meat grinder, bacon does not need to be frozen, but most people don’t have one at home.)
Step 2
Take one quarter pound chopped bacon and one quarter pound ground beef and combine them to make a one half pound Hapa Burger patty. This recipe yields 4 one half pound patties. Grill hamburger patties until cooked all the way through.
Step 3
Melt cheddar cheese over your patties. While cheese is melting, toast KING’S HAWAIIAN buns over indirect heat. If indirect heat is not an option, keep a very close eye on your buns as they will toast fairly quickly over direct heat!
Step 4
Build your burger in this order: Bottom bun, spicy mayo, Hapa Burger patty w/ cheese, grilled onions, smashed avocado, top bun.

Neens from Ono Yum says:

Nobody ever complained about more bacon, so add more cooked crispy bacon to the burger for a little more tasty goodness!
