    Flavor-packed beef patties are wrapped in bacon to give them an expensive look. They are served with a rich red wine sauce to give that pricey steak taste at a less expensive cost. Source: Woman's World

      Loved them! What wonderful flavors! It was a great "fake out" for filet mignon. My burgers were a little"wet" but the bacon wrapped around them held them together. Love the wine, mustard and rosemary combo. I would warn others that when it says "cook, turning ONCE" that is exactly as you should cook them; otherwise, they will fall apart. Thanks, Lainey, for some great flavor packed burgers (filet mignon).

      Ye with little faith, rest assured this "mignon" can rival many a steak. When my husband realized this was a replacement for the Real McCoy, he was disappointed. Well, that opinion didn't last long. Now he wants them again next week...go figure!

      This is a superior use for ground beef. It doesn't feel like your budgeting with this recipe. I made 2 servings and replaced the ask for 1/2 an egg yolk with 1/8 cup of Eggbeaters and it worked just fine. Other than that I went right by the recipe and it turned out a right treat. I used the beef broth for the sauce and it was so good with the mustard touch. The garlic bread is the perfect final touch. This would make a wicked good burger too!
