Bacon-Stuffed Burgers Recipe

Bacon-Stuffed Burgers Recipe

I came across this recipe years ago and added the pork sausage to perk it up. My husband claims these are the best burgers he's ever tasted, and I have to agree. They're great served with some crunchy dill pickles.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom pieces, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 pound Jimmy Dean® Premium Pork Sausage Roll
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons steak sauce
  • 8 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • Leaf lettuce, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon and discard all but 2 tablespoons drippings. Saute onions in drippings until tender. Crumble bacon; add with mushrooms to skillet and set aside.
  • 2. 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 tightly to seal.
  • 3. Grill over medium heat until well-done (pork sausage in burgers requires thorough cooking). Serve on buns, with lettuce if desired. Yield: 8 servings.
