Description

Small but sinful burgers dripping with bacon flavor.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Ground Beef
  • 1 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Pepper Or Other Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 8 strips Thin/regular Bacon
  • ¼ cups Barbecue Sauce
  • 8 slices (shavings) Cheese: Cheddar, Jack, Etc.
  • 8 whole Dinner Rolls (or Slider Rolls)

Preparation

Combine meat with all seasoning ingredients. Knead with hands to combine. Form into small-to-medium sized balls.

Cut slices of bacon in half lengthwise. Wrap one half around ball of hamburger, pulling slightly to keep taut. Smooth to secure seam. Repeat with other half of bacon, ending seam in the same place.

Place patties, bacon seam side down, on a baking pan with a drip tray sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Press gently on each patty to flatten as much as you can without squeezing meat out of the edges. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes to firm.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Brush each patty liberally with barbecue sauce. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until bacon is cooked to your specifications.

Remove from oven and lay a cheese shaving on each patty. Serve on a roll with your choice of toppings/condiments.

These burgers ROCK. I am typically not a big burger girl, but these…mmmmm. I substituted 1/2 tsp. Italian pepper & onion seasoning & 1/2 tsp. garlic pepper for the lemon pepper the recipe called for = deliciousness !!!

I believe the cut on the bacon is to be cross-wise (not lengthwise)?

These are so tasty!! My whole family enjoyed them, and I really liked that they cooked in the oven. I will be making these again.

These are my husband’s new favorite meal, he asks for them all the time. I sometimes make them with your onion strings, he likes to put them on his sliders.

Delicious !!! I had use 1/2 tsp. Italian pepper & onion and 1/2 tsp. garlic pepper since I didn’t have any lemon pepper. I also used pepper jack cheese on top. Wow. Thanks for making me the hit of the party!!

Oh Ree, these were amazing! While they were cooking, my 6-year-old son said that my kitchen smelled like heaven. I made half of these with jalapenos, half without. And half of each of those I put BBQ sauce on before cooking in the oven, half without. I used King’s Hawaiian Rolls for buns. Amazing. My husband was dying. My kids were head over heels. I was a happy mama. Thank you!!
