  • When your burger is almost ready start cooking your bacon
  • Once your burger patties are cooked place a slice of cheese on each of them
  • Then add the bacon to one of the patties, then placing the other burger patty on that (so the order is patty, cheese, bacon, patty, cheese)
  • Cut you burger bun in half and lightly warm it in the oven
  • On the bottom burger bun spread your tomato relish, followed by the cos lettuce, sliced tomatoes, and sliced pickles
  • On the top burger bun put your aioli
  • Add your finished burger patties on the bottom bun
