Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix the brown sugar, cayenne, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
Arrange the bacon on a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle half the sugar-spice mixture over the bacon. Bake for 10 minutes, then flip and sprinkled with the remaining sugar-spice mix and bake for 10 more minutes. Remove the bacon from the oven and let cool.
Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally, until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon on paper towels, then chop finely.
Whisk the mayonnaise and sour cream in a small bowl. Stir in the diced bacon and chives and season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Form the ground beef into 4 equal-size patties, about 3 ½-inches in diameter. Sprinkle both sides of the patty with salt and pepper.
Heat a grill pan or cast iron skillet over high heat, and add the canola oil. Add the patties and cook about 3 minutes, then flip and top each with 1 slice Cheddar. Cover and continue cooking for 3 more minutes.
Smear the bacon mayonnaise on the toast. Serve the patties on the toast with lettuce, tomato, and candied bacon.
