The Baja Burger (serves 1)

1/3 lb. ground pork
1 T. hoisin sauce
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 t. liquid smoke (mesquite)
3 thin slices Monterey Jack cheese

Mix these ingredients together well. Divide into 2 equal parts. Form 1 part into the bottom patty. Put Monterey Jack cheese on top of bottom patty and fashion the second part into the top patty. Push the edges together to seal. Cook on medium heat.

THE BUN: (makes 2 buns)
1 pkg. Ramen noodles
1 egg, beaten
2 slices bacon, cooked  and cut into small pieces
1 T. minced onion
1 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. sea salt
2 T. bacon fat

Cook noodles until just tender. Drain, rinse and add egg, onion, garlic, and salt. Put 1/2 of noodle mixture in egg poacher, tuck in bacon pieces and press down firmly. Press again and cook on medium heat until firm enough to take from poacher without breaking up. Fry in bacon fat until golden.

1 medium slice Bermuda onion (raw)
1 1/2 slices cooked bacon
avocado slice(s)
1 slice mango with 1 t. granulated sugar
Pomegranate and/or chopped almonds as garnish

2 T. hoisin
2 T. mayonnaise

Stir together until well mixed.
