  1. Make a sriracha mayo. Combine the mayonnaise, sriracha or other hot sauce, lime juice, and a little salt and pepper. Set it aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the bacon evenly on both sides until it’s crispy, about eight to 10 minutes. Move the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels and let it dry. Drain the bacon grease from the skillet, but don’t wipe it clean.
  3. Form the beef into three patties. Using a small glass, cut a hole in the center of each patty. With the extra meat, form the fourth patty. Season the patties on both sides with salt and black pepper — you should be generous with the seasoning.
  4. Heat the skillet on medium-high and add the butter. Wait until the butter has melted and then add the beef patties. Cook the burgers for two minutes, then flip them to the other side.
  5. Crack an egg into the center of each patty. Cover the skillet and cook the burgers until the whites of the eggs are set.
  6. Spread the bottom of each burger bun with the mayo blend. Add the burgers to each bun and top them with bacon, lettuce, red onion, tomato, and a slice of cheese.
