  1. Preheat the grill.
  2. Whisk together the egg, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the ground beef and mix with your hands to combine the ingredients gently. Form into 3 patties.
  3. In a large skillet, cook the bacon strips on medium-high heat until crispy.
  4. Place the patties on the preheated grill. Cover and cook for 6-8 minutes per side or to the desired doneness.
  5. Remove the cooked burgers from the heat and let them rest 3-5 minutes.
  6. While the burgers are resting, lightly toast the buns and then turn off the grill.
  7. Whisk the PBfit and water together in a small bowl.
  8. For each bun, dress each side with the PBfit mixture, and place a slice of cheese on the bottom bun. Place a cooked burger on top of the cheese and top with 1/3 of the cooked bacon. Add any desired condiments such as lettuce, onion, tomatoes, or pickles.
