Bacon Meatloaf Burgers
During the summer months, I cook outdoors as much as possible. Burgers are always a huge hit with my family, so I try to make different burgers just for variety! This recipe for bacon meatloaf burgers is a huge hit. Although you can make this recipe as-is, using ground beef and pork bacon, you can also make a lighter version using ground venison or turkey and turkey bacon. Enjoy!
Number of servings per recipe: 4
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1 Tablespoon ketchup
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon dried thyme
- cayenne pepper to taste
- ¼ cup plain bread crumbs
- ⅔ cup chopped cooked bacon
- 1-pound ground beef (venison, turkey, or chicken can also be substituted)
- Combine egg, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl. Add breadcrumbs and chopped cooked bacon. Crumble in the ground beef, then mix until bacon and breadcrumbs are distributed evenly.
- Form mixture into 4 burgers. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled thoroughly (about 3 hours).
- Lightly oil outdoor grill grate, and either preheat the grill (medium-high heat if using a propane grill) or start the wood/charcoal fire.
