If you want a super cheesy, bacony sous vide burger then this is your jam.  Prepping ahead of time makes everything come together in a few minutes. After I got about half way through this I realized it needed some more acid, so I added some pickled peppers. So depending on how meaty and cheesy you like it, you might consider adding some sort of pickle to this recipe.
