BBQ Bacon Burgers

With a slice of bacon inside and a tasty barbecue-mayo sauce on top, these are definitely not ordinary burgers. We think you'll agree. —Joan Schoenherr, Eastpointe, Michigan

    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.

    maybe I made this wrong but it didnt turn out to good. I used mircule whip instead of mayo, maybe thats what made the sauce bad?
