In a skillet, cut the bacon strips in halves and cook until nice and crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan and put onto a plate lined with paper towels to drain.

Set aside until needed.

Heat butter a skillet until butter melts; add patties.

Cook until patties are no longer pink in center, 4 to 5 minutes on each side.

Place 1 slice cheese on top of each patty.

Cook until it melts a little.

Put bun halves on the skillet for a few seconds, just to slightly warm them.


Spread each bun with mayonnaise on one half, and mustard on another; arrange 1 lettuce leaf on bottom half of each bun.

Top with a meat or chicken patty, bacon slice, tomato slices, a dollop of ketchup and top half of bun.

*Note-You can also cook the meat on the barbecue.
