Bacon: In a large sauté pan on medium-high heat add in the bacon and brown on one side (3 to 4 minutes). Flip bacon over and deglaze with bourbon and add in the brown sugar and gently stir. Finish the bacon in the oven on 350°F for 10 minutes.

Burger: Form and season burger patties, then coat burgers and pineapple slices on all sides with olive oil. Place the turkey patties on a hot grill (450º F to 550° F) and cook on each side for 6 to 7 minutes or until they are browned on the outside and cooked thoroughly. After you flip the turkey burgers, place the pineapple on the grill to form grill marks. Place cheese on top of the burger patties. Once the burgers and pineapple slices are cooked, remove from the heat and let rest for 2 to 3 minutes.

To Plate: place burger on the bun and stack on the lettuce, pineapple, and bacon.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
