MethodIn large bowl, beat egg with water; stir in bread crumbs, cheese, bacon, onion, mustard, salt, herb seasoning and pepper. Add pork; mix just until combined.
Shape into four 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick patties. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container; refrigerate for up to 24 hours or freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator.)
Place patties on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until digital thermometer inserted sideways into centre reads 160°F (71°C), 12 to 14 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut buns in half; toast on grill for 2 minutes. Sandwich burgers, lettuce and tomato in buns.
