For the bacon lovers around us. You know who you are. Serve with ice-cold Pilsner or Hard Cider
Place beef and bacon into a large mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper. Mix together until fully combined. Form six equal patties and place in the refrigerator between parchment to chill. Heat a grill to medium-high heat and brush the surface with vegetable oil.
Place patties onto the grill and grill for 5 to 7 minutes on each side. About two minutes before the patties are done, place a small handful cheddar and jack cheese over each patty and allow cheese to melt before removing and placing onto a clean surface.
To assemble: Stack two patties onto one another and place on a bun. Add any remaining toppings and condiments of your choice and serve.
