Recipe by Lainey39

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).
