1

1
teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1
teaspoon garlic salt
1

3/4
cup Progresso™ plain bread crumbs
1 1/2
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill for indirect cooking as directed by manufacturer.
  • 2 In small bowl, mix 1/4 cup of the ketchup and the honey; set aside. In large bowl, mix remaining 1/4 cup ketchup, the Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, pepper and egg. Stir in onion and bread crumbs. Stir in beef until well mixed.
  • 3 Shape beef mixture into 6 patties, 3/4 inch thick and about 3 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap 1 slice bacon around each patty; secure with toothpick.

Cover grill; cook 5 to 8 minutes longer or until meat thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160°F and bacon is crisp. Serve on bread.

Expert Tips

These patties taste great on their own, but you may want to try serving them between bread slices as a sandwich.

If you spray your measuring tablespoon with cooking spray, the honey won't stick to the spoon.
