Bacon-Wrapped Hamburgers

Since South Dakota summers are so short, we grill out as often as we can when the weather is warm. By mixing the cheese into the burger, I know I'll get a little cheese in every bite. —Dana Matthies, Parker, South Dakota

    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.
