Reviews for Bacon-Wrapped Hamburgers
"These were pretty good. They didn't fall apart and the bacon cooked. I have to admit I was surprised since the other comments weren't that encouraging. We'll make these again!"
"Sadly, these fall apart on the grill."
"I omit the egg and use BBQ sauce instead of ketchup. Definitely a hit in our family - summertime favorite for the grill"
"I made these into four patties but six would have been better. They were rather large for a normal hamburger bun. I added a little flour as the meat mixture seemed very soft and I was afraid they would fall apart on the grill. My husband liked them quiet well. I thought they were ok."
