BBQ and bacon … great recipe

It’s the time of year for get togethers and cook-outs and this burger sounds like a winner.

Grill burgers, covered over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees and juices run clear.  Top with cheese.  Cover and cook 1-2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.  Spread remaining mayonnaise mixture over buns; top with each with a burger, lettuce and tomato.
