June 27 - Bacon-Wrapped Cheeseburgers

I found this recipe for bacon wrapped cheeseburgers, and they sounded like the poor man's version of filet mignon wrapped in bacon - perfect for us! I was really excited about them as I made them, but was pretty bummed about their lackluster turn out. They were so moist they crumbled on the grill and we had to pan-fry them, they tasted a bit bland to me, and the bacon didn't cook nearly as quickly as the beef. I'll post the recipe, but beware - it needs some tweaking! If you find a good way to fix this one up, let me know - I'd love to make them more successfully.

Bacon-Wrapped Cheeseburgers
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1 small onion, chopped
1 egg
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 pound ground beef
6 slices bacon
6 hamburger buns, split

  1. Preheat a grill for high heat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the Cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, onion, egg, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Crumble in the ground beef, and mix together by hand. Form into 6 patties, and wrap a slice of bacon around each one. Secure bacon with toothpicks.
  3. Place patties on the grill, and cook for 5 minutes per side, or until well done. Remove toothpicks before serving on hamburger buns.
