My family LOVES bacon and a great cheeseburger. I like most started making mine with the bacon as a topping for the burger. It always seemed there was mouth fulls with no bacon or the bacon wouldn't fit the bun right. So one day as I always do, I decided to try something new. It worked out to my benefit and my families. I now make these on burger nights and for Superbowl Parties I use the same recipe and make sliders, just a smaller patty and roll as the bun.
