6 slices Colby jack cheese, cut into 4 squares each

4 slices cooked bacon, cut into thirds

2 small tomatoes on the vines, sliced into 12 slices

Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet, add the burger patties, and cook for about 4 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through. Top each burger with the 2 mini slices of cheese. Cover with a lid until just melted.

Remove from pan onto a plate and top with bacon slices, tomato slices, and pickles. Insert a toothpick to secure the toppings and serve immediately with the lettuce and sauce.
