Reviews for BBQ Bacon Burgers
"Excellent! Very juicy and tasty!"
"Delicious, juicy burgers! I used ground turkey and turkey bacon (which I did not cook before I made the burgers, I just chopped it up and added it the meat). I used Worcestershire pub burger seasoning in place of the steak seasoning."
"Swapped out the mayo for sour cream, Penzey's Northwoods seasoning. Ended up using bacon as a topping rather than in the meat due to cook's error. Juicy, fantastic burger. Will definitely be in the regular rotation."
"This was so good! DH really liked it. I used pre-cooked bacon to speed up prep time."
"These are fantastic. I added an egg and some breadcrumbs; they were delicious. The sauce is a must."
