Bacon Stuffed Burgers
- 4 slice Bacon
- 1/4 C. Onion, chopped
- 1 (4 oz.) can Mushroom Pieces, drained and finely chopped
- 1 lb. Ground Beef, lean
- 1 lb. Ground Pork, bulk
- 1/4 C. Parmesan Cheese, grated
- 1/2 tsp. Pepper
- 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
- 2 Tbs. Steak Sauce
- 8 Hamburger Buns, split and toasted
- Leaf Lettuce, optional
Cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon and discard all but 2 Tbs. of drippings. Sauté onions in drippings until tender. Crumble bacon, add with mushrooms to skillet and set aside. Meanwhile, combine beef, pork, cheese, pepper, garlic powder, and steak sauce in a large bowl. Shape into 16 patties. Divide bacon mixture and place over eight of the patties. Place remaining patties on top and press edges to seal. Grill over medium coals well done (pork sausage in burgers require
thorough cooking). Serve on buns, with lettuce if desired.
Yield: 8 Servings.
