Enjoy this wonderful burger made with beef and bacon patty that’s perfect for a dinner.
lb lean ground beef
pkg (2.8 oz) real bacon pieces (about 3/4 cup)
teaspoon seasoned salt
whole wheat burger buns, split
small leaves leaf lettuce
slices (1 oz each) Cheddar cheese
teaspoons barbecue sauce
thin slices sweet onion (such as Vidalia®, Walla Walla, Maui or Texas Sweet)
Heat gas or charcoal grill. In large bowl, combine ground beef and bacon pieces; mix gently. Shape into 8 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Make slight indentation in center of each patty.
When ready to grill, place patties on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 13 to 15 minutes or until thoroughly cooked, turning once. During last 1 to 2 minutes of cooking time, place buns cut side down on grill; heat until toasted.
Place toasted bottoms of buns on large serving platter. Top each with lettuce. While patties are still on grill, sprinkle each with seasoned salt; top each with slice of cheese. Place patties on lettuce-lined buns. Immediately top each with 1 teaspoon barbecue sauce and 1 onion slice. Cover with top halves of buns.
After putting the burgers on the grill, choose a clean plate for the cooked burgers.
To broil patties, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once. During last 1 to 2 minutes of cooking time, place buns cut side up on broiler pan; heat until toasted.
