8 slices bacon
1 lb ground sirloin
1 tsp worchestershire
1-2 dashes tabasco
1/4 tsp dried thyme
S & P to taste

Prehead grill to medium high. Cook bacon on stovetop in a large skillet over med-low heat until just crisp (~6-7 minutes). Transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels and set aside.
Place the beef, worchestershire, tabasco, thyme and salt and pepper in a bowl, and toss lightly with a fork to combine. Form the mixture into 4 patties, each about 3 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick.
Oil the grill grate well with vegetable oil. Add the burgers and grill for about 3 minutes for rare, 4 minutes for medium-rare. Turn them over and grill for another 3-4 minutes topping the burgers with Swiss cheese in the last minute of cooking.
Place the burgers on toasted buns and top them with bacon.
Offer as sides: tomato, onion, avocado and lettuce.
