Prep Time : 5 Minutes Cook Time : 20 Minutes Total : 25 Minutes Servings : 8 Servings

1 Head of Iceberg Lettuce
8 Burger Patties (Make your own or pre-made)
Fried Onion Straws

Cook the bacon in the oven
• Preheat your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.
• Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
• Lay the bacon slices on the baking sheet.
• Cook the bacon for 18-20 minutes or until it’s as crispy as you’d like.
• Remove the bacon from the oven and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
Put the burner on low-medium heat
Pour in heavy cream, cooper cheese, and american cheese. Let slowly melt for 3-5 minutes. Once the cheese is looking melty, begin to stir cheese and cream together. Add kick sauce and continue to stir. Stir while on low-medium heat for another 5 minutes till the cheese sauce is a smooth consistency. Remove from heat.
Grill your burgers
Grill time ultimately depends on thickness and how hot your grill is but below is a general guideline to grilling burgers. Flip half way through preferred cook time.
• For Rare Burgers cook for 4 minutes total (125°F)
• For Medium-Rare burgers, cook for 5 minutes total (135°F)
• For Medium burgers, cook for 6 to 7 minutes total (145°F)
• For Well-Done burgers, cook for 8 to 9 minutes total (160 °F)
Prepare the produce
Thinly slice the tomatoes and rip iceberg lettuce into bun sized pieces.
If the cheese sauce has begun to harden, put back on low heat for 2-4 minutes until melty again.
• Lay down the bottom of your bun and scoop out a thin layer of cheese sauce to cover the bottom. Want to make sure some Kick Cheese is every bite!
• Pile on the produce. Lay a few lettuce pieces on top of the Kick Cheese. Add a slice or two of tomato.
• Place the beef patty on top of the tomato.
• Add two strips of bacon.
• Scoop a heaping pile of Kick Cheese all over the burger. As much as you want!
• Sprinkle on the fried onion straws.
