Gather all of your ingredients. Grate the cheese (or slice if desired).
Cut the burger in half so that you have 2, thinner burgers.
On the chopping board, butter the tops of the burgers then season with salt, pepper and a herb of your choosing (I used Thyme in this recipe).
In a pan over high heat, put the burgers face down so the side with the butter on starts cooking first. Time these to cook for 5 minutes.
While the first side is cooking, butter and season the side that is face up. Be careful of any spitting butter!
After the 5 minutes are up, turn the burgers over and again, cook this side for 5 minutes.
Once the 5 minutes are up, leave the burgers aside to rest.
Now put the 2 pieces of bacon in the pan to start cooking to your liking - they won’t take long though.
Once the bacon is cooked, put them on your burger and top with cheese.
