- Preheat oven to 400° and line a large baking sheet with foil. Lay bacon in a single layer onto baking sheet or cooling rack, making sure not to overlap. Bake until your desired crispness, around 15 to 25 minutes.
- Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until softened and starting to turn golden. Set aside.
- In a bowl, combine the beef mince with the herbs and the egg. Season, add the onions and mix well. Using your hands, shape into 4 patties.
- Cook the burgers on a preheated barbecue or griddle for 5-6 minutes on each side. While the second side is cooking, lay a slice of cheese on top to melt slightly.
- Meanwhile, lightly toast the cut-sides of the buns on the barbecue. Fill with the lettuce, burgers, bacon and tomato slices. Serve with ketchup.
