Parmesan Caesar Chicken and Bacon Burgers

Before starting, wash and dry all produce.Remove 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) from the fridge and set aside to come up to room temperature. Add chicken, breadcrumbs and 2 tbsp Parmesan (dbl for 4 ppl) to a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.Form mixture into two 5-inch-wide patties (4 patties for 4 ppl). (NOTE: Your mixture may look wet; this is normal!)
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then patties. Pan-fry until patties are cooked through, 5-6 min per side.** (TIP: If patties are browning too quickly, reduce heat to medium-low.) (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan; cook patties in 2 batches for 4 ppl)Remove from heat. Transfer patties to a plate, then cover to keep warm.Carefully wipe the pan clean.
Meanwhile, cut tomatoes into 1/4-inch pieces.Add vinegar, 1/2 tsp sugar and 1 tbsp oil (dbl both for 4ppl) to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then whisk to combine.
Reheat the same pan (from step 2) over medium.Meanwhile, halve buns, then spread softened butter on the cut side of each half.When the pan is hot, add buns, cut-side down (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan; toast buns in 2 batches for 4 ppl). Toast until golden brown, 2-3 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on them so they don't burn!)
Spread Caesar dressing on top and bottom buns. Stack patties and some spinach on bottom buns. Close with top buns. Add tomatoes and remaining spinach to the bowl with dressing, then toss to combine.Divide burgers and salad between plates. Sprinkle croutons and remaining Parmesan over salad.
