Season beef with Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper. Mix well to incorporate seasonings.
Remove from bowl and form into two patties.
Remove about 1/3rd from each patty. Form little bowls in each patty, add one egg yolk to egg patty, and grated cheddar cheese. Top with more ground beef and pinch to seal edges carefully.
Place patties in their own Sous Vide bags and seal on "dry" and "gentle" setting.
Cook in the Sous Vide Supreme at 140 F for one hour. Remove from water bath and open packets.
On a grill preheated to high, grill onions and sear burgers about 1 minute on each side, just to get grill marks.
To build the burger, place smoky thousand island on a poppy seed bun, coating generously. Add fresh Romaine lettuce leaves, pickled sliced jalapeño rings, 3 slices of fried applewood smoked bacon, the sous vide burger, 4 slices of fresh tomato, and charred red onion slices. Top with the bun and enjoy!
To cook sous vide eggs, place them in the Sous Vide Supreme for 15 minutes at 167 F. Remove immediately, discard whites, and reserve yolks for burgers.
