Quick Bacon-Wrapped Beef Patties

“I found this in a local newspaper 25 years ago when I was a newlywed,” recalls Lana Maskus of Wright, Kansas. “My husband raved about, and I have served it at least once a month ever since. My daughter took the recipe with her to college and uses it frequently. These are also good when cooked on an outdoor grill,” she adds.

    This was a good quick meal. A little salty so next time I will cut back a bit.

    These burgers are the best! In fact I even used the sauce and put it on top of baked chicken. YUMMO!
