- 2 pounds Wagyu ground beef, formed into 1/2 pound round balls (can use 80/20 ground beef)
- 4 potato buns (or your favorite bun)
- 6-8 slices Wagyu beef bacon or pork bacon, cooked
- Grilled guacamole*
- Cold Pickled jalapeños**
- Swiss cheese, sliced
- Green leaf lettuce
Preheat flat top grill of griddle to medium-high heat.
Loosely form burgers into round balls. Place round balls on griddle and press down with spatula, forming a loose patty. Salt and pepper liberally. Use your griddle to create a tasty crust. Grill patties until internal temperature reaches 125 degrees F. for rare, 135 degrees F. for medium rare, 145 degrees F. for medium and 160 degrees F. for well done. Flip patties halfway through cook time. The last few minutes of cooking, add a slice of cheese to patties and let the cheese melt.
Place green leaf lettuce on bun then patty, bacon, grilled guacamole and pickled jalapeños.
