A good burger with all the trimmings really is hard to beat. Whatever you like to top yours with is up to you, but getting the burger right is really important.

Put the red onion and lemon juice into a small zip lock bag ensuring all the onions are immersed in the liquid. Leave aside to pickle for at least 1 hour.
For the burger, combine the minced beef, Dijon, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, ketchup, thyme, salt and pepper in a large bowl and mix until everything is evenly combined. Divide into 4 and shape into patties. Place a large pan on a medium high heat and add the 1 tbsp of oil.
Fry the streaky bacon for 2-3 minutes on either side or until nice and crisp, set aside. Reduce the heat to medium and place the burger patties in the pan, fry for 6 minutes on either side or until cooked through and browned. Once cooked top with the cheese and cover with a cloche or lid for 3-4 minutes until the cheese is oozing and melted.
Place the bottom of the toasted bun onto a plate, smear with the spicy mayo, top with the burger, crisp streaky bacon, pickled red onion and rocket followed by the burger bun top.
