Separate into patties and set aside while you get your grill ready.
Place bacon sprinkled with brown sugar, in 350 degree oven until done about 10 - 15 minutes. Watch carefully so your bacon doesn't burn.
In a small bowl combine peppers and onions. Drizzle with oil and then sprinkle with fajita seasoning. Set aside.
Combine all ingredients for mayo in another small bowl. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to build your burger.
In a medium skillet cook peppers and onion until done about 10 minutes. Keep warm on stove top.
