This is one of my go-to grilling recipes. To make these burgers faster, substitute canned mushrooms and bacon bits. —Jo Reed, Craig, Colorado

Ingredients

  • 6 bacon strips, diced
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3 thin onion slices
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3 slices process American cheese
  • 3 hamburger buns, split

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels. In the drippings, saute mushrooms and onion until tender. Transfer to a large bowl with a slotted spoon; add bacon.
  2. In another bowl, combine the egg, Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt, salt, pepper and horseradish; sprinkle beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into six 1/4-in.-thick patties.
  3. Divide bacon mixture among three patties. Top with a cheese slice; fold in corners of cheese. Top with remaining patties; seal edges.
  4. Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat for 5-6 minutes a side or until a thermometer reads 160° and meat juices run clear. Serve on buns.
