Bacon Stuffed Burgers
- 4 bacon strips
- 40g chopped onion
- 1 can mushroom pieces, drained and finely chopped
- 450g pound lean ground beef
- 450g pound pork sausage meat
- 30g parmesan cheese, grated
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tbsp steak sauce
- 8 hamburger buns, split and toasted
- Leaf lettuce (optional)
Cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon and discard all but two tablespoons drippings.
Saute onion in drippings until tender.
Crumble bacon: add with mushrooms to skillet and set aside.
Meanwhile, combine beef, pork, cheese, pepper, garlic powder and steak sauce in a large bowl. Shape into 16 patties.
Divide bacon mixture and place over eight of the patties. Place remaining patties on top and press edges tightly to seal.
Grill over medium coals until well-done (pork sausage in burgers requires thorough cooking).
Serve on buns; with lettuce if desired.
