"This is my version of a Texas classic. This burger is moist, flavorful and stays together well when grilling!"
1 1/2 lbs
80% lean ground beef
1 -1 1/2 tablespoon
( I use McCormicks Mesquite)
minced dried onion
salt and pepper
Begin by chopping the raw bacon finely with a sharp knife. I slice it in half, then in strips, then dice it. The key is to make it small. I do not recommend a food processor because it heats the bacon up too much and can become gummy.
Gently mix all ingredients in a large bowl and add the bacon. Form into 6-8 patties and put in the freezer for 30 minutes before grilling. This is not a necessary step, but I think the meat holds together nicely when the patties go on cold.
Grill patties approximately 5 minutes on each side. Allow them to rest 5 minutes before serving.
Top with cheese if you wish and any of your favorite toppings.
