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.)
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.
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!
Build your burger in this order: Bottom bun, spicy mayo, Hapa Burger patty w/ cheese, grilled onions, smashed avocado, top bun.
