  • 4 slices turkey bacon
  • 1 lb extra-lean ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup sliced pickles
  • 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced optional


  • 1/4 cup light mayo
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp water


  • Cook turkey bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat for about 6-7 minutes until cooked through. Let cool, then cut slices in half.
  • Meanwhile, prepare veggies, dividing everything up among 4 large salad bowls. Mix ingredients under the dressing heading together and set aside.
  • Mix salt & pepper in with ground beef in a large bowl, then form beef mixture into 8 equal-sized balls. Heat a skillet over med-high heat, then smash each ball until super thin, frying for about 1-2 minutes per side.
  • Add cheese to 4 of the burger patties, then top with another patty so cheese can melt. Add double burgers to each bowl, topping with bacon then drizzling the whole bowl with sauce. Serve and enjoy!



Swap out the veggies for any other toppings of your choice.
Store these burger bowls in mason jars in the fridge for up to 5 days. If you want to reheat the beef patties and bacon, store them separately.
Freeze the burger patties raw or cooked for up to 3 months. Make sure to stack a piece of paper between each patty if you’re freezing them raw.
