Hungry Girl Bacon Cheeseburger

Mmmm, Mmmmm! And of course, I forgot to get a picture of it :(

4 ounces of raw extra lean ground beef
1 Tbsp of pre-cooked real crumbled bacon
1 wedge of laughing cow light Swiss cheese
dash of salt and dash of pepper

Season beef with salt and pepper.  Combine beef with bacon and knead to evenly distribute bacon.  Form into a ball, and using your thumb, press a hole, make a large, hollow indentation in the ball (past the center but not all the way through). Fill the hole with cheese and squeeze the meat to seal, making sure no cheese is exposed. Flatten slightly into a thick patty.

Bring a skillet or grill pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove. Place patty in the skillet/pan, cover, and cook for 4 - 7 minutes per side, depending on how well-done you like your burger. (Don't press on the patty with your spatula -- your patty might ooze cheese!)
