Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs 80% lean ground beef
  • 12 slices bacon, uncooked
  • 1 -1 12 tablespoon grill seasoning (I use McCormicks Mesquite)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon minced dried onion
  • 14 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Begin by chopping the raw bacon finely with a sharp knife. I slice it in half, then in strips, then dice it. The key is to make it small. I do not recommend a food processor because it heats the bacon up too much and can become gummy.
  2. Gently mix all ingredients in a large bowl and add the bacon. Form into 6-8 patties and put in the freezer for 30 minutes before grilling. This is not a necessary step, but I think the meat holds together nicely when the patties go on cold.
  3. Grill patties approximately 5 minutes on each side. Allow them to rest 5 minutes before serving.
  4. Top with cheese if you wish and any of your favorite toppings.
