 1 egg
 3 tbsp (45 mL) dry bread crumbs
 ½ small onion, grated
 ¼ tsp (1 mL) EACH ground cloves and allspice
 ¼ tsp (1 mL) EACH dried marjoram (optional), salt and pepper
 1 lb (0.45 kg) Lean Ground Beef Sirloin
 8 slices Canadian smoked Cheddar cheese
 4 hamburger buns
 4 slices back bacon
 Crunchy Apple Slaw (recipe follows)

1

Stir egg with bread crumbs in large bowl; add onion, cloves, allspice, marjoram (if using), salt and pepper. Mix in beef until just combined. Shape into four 1/2-inch (2 cm) thick patties. Make thumbprint depression in centre of each to prevent rounding while cooking. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or for up to 24 hours.)

2

Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and cook, turning twice, until digital instant read thermometer inserted sideways into centre of each patty reads 160°F (71°C), about 10 minutes. Top each patty with cheese to melt.

3

Meanwhile, toast buns. Grill back bacon, turning once, until golden, about 1 minute. Assemble burgers by sandwiching slice of bacon, burger patty and some Apple Slaw in buns.
