Kitchen Tips
Use Italian-style bread crumbs for a different flavor. You could also use pizza or spaghetti sauce for the ketchup.
Center-cut bacon has had the fatty ends cut off. You can use slices of regular bacon--just trim about 3/4 inch off of each end. The half-strips should just cover the surface of each beef square.
