(4 oz) 96% lean ground beef
Pinch of salt
1-1/2 slices center-cut bacon
1 reduced-calorie hamburger bun
(1/2 oz) 2% Swiss cheese slivers
1 to 2 tbsp red onion slivers
2 tsp barbecue sauce
1. Pack the ground beef tightly together with your hands; shape it into a 4-inch-diameter patty on a sheet of wax paper. Sprinkle lightly with salt on both sides, and then place in the freezer for 5 minutes (to help the patty keep its shape).
2. Preheat a grill to high.
3. Cut the whole bacon strip in half crosswise. Lay the 3 half strips side by side in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook, ﬂipping them every couple of minutes, until crispy and well done (6 to 8 minutes). Transfer bacon to a paper towel–lined plate to drain.
4. Meanwhile, remove the patty from the freezer and place it on the grill. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side for medium rare, or until the desired doneness is reached. Toast the bun halves on an upper grill rack for 30 seconds to 1 minute, watching them carefully. Place the cheese on top of the burger for the last few seconds of cooking so it just begins to melt.
5. Add the patty to the toasted bun bottom. Lay the bacon strips side by side over the top. Place the onion over that. Spread the BBQ sauce evenly over the inside of the top half of the bun. Place top bun on. Serve immediately.
Can be made in 30 minutes or less / No more than 20 minutes hands-on prep time .

[FYI: Please don’t cheat when buying the beef. Some people think that buying 93% lean ground beef isn’t that much different from the 96% lean, but it is. Four ounces of the 96% lean has about 150 calories and 4-1/2grams of fat. Four ounces of the 93% lean has 170 calories and 8 grams of fat.]
