For the candied bacon

  • 3 Tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon

For the bacon mayonnaise

  • 3 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 1/3 Cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

For the burgers

  • 1 1/2 Pound ground beef chuck
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 slices Cheddar cheese
  • 8 slices Texas toast, toasted
  • Romaine lettuce, for topping
  • Sliced tomato, for topping


For the candied bacon

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.

For the bacon mayonnaise

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.

For the burgers

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.
