With these nachos, we are going to freezer the burger and bacon. Then you can reheat it in a skillet and assemble the nachos. I highly highly highly recommend that you use a sharp cheddar the flavor complements the bacon-burger perfectly. Top with your favorite nacho toppings, like sour cream and salsa. Enjoy!
