Instructions
  1. Almond Butter Sauce
  2. Sauce can be made ahead then warmed before putting on the burgers.
  3. In a small sauce pan mix almond butter and water.
  4. Bring to a slow simmer on low flame, and keep stirring until it has reached a thick consistency.
  5. Now add the coconut aminos and mix well.
  6. In the meantime in a small food processor mix garlic clovers, the chili peppers, with their seeds, vinegar and Swerve, then blend until a smooth paste is formed. ( I used a coffee grinder for this).
  7. Now add the chili paste to the almond butter mix and stir until well blended.
  8. Set aside.
  9. Burgers
  10. Bring the ground beef to room temperature.
  11. Shape into 4 patties, then put an indentation in the middle of each patty with your thumb, so the patty will not become round once cooked.
  12. Once shaped place the 4 patties on a broiler pan, then sprinkle with plenty of salt and pepper.
  13. Turn on the oven's broiler on high and once the oven is hot place the patties, at about mid-height in the oven.
  14. Broil for about 7 min or until golden brown on top.
  15. Now remove from the oven and turn.
  16. Again broil for 5 to 7 min or until browned outside.
  17. Now remove from oven and place cheese slices on the burgers.
  18. Put back in the oven for 5 minutes until cheese melts.
  19. Slice red onion in ¼" thick slices.
  20. In the meantime fry bacon in a skillet until desired doneness.
  21. Drain bacon on a paper towel.
  22. To assemble the burger:
  23. Place 2 lettuce leaves in the bottom of each dish, they can be folded if they are too large.
  24. Now place the patties on top of the lettuce.
  25. Place a slice of red onion on the patties.
  26. If you want to hold your burger, let the bacon cool, then add the Almond Butter Sauce on top of the onion and top with bacon.
  27. If you want to cut your burger, place bacon on the onion and top with abundant sauce.
