Texas Squealer Burger


1 1⁄2lbs 80% lean ground beef
12 slices bacon, uncooked
1 -1 1⁄2tablespoon grill seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon minced dried onion
1⁄4cup Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper


Begin by chopping the raw bacon finely with a sharp knife. The key is to make it small. I do not recommend a food processor because it heats the bacon up too much and can become gummy.
Gently mix all ingredients in a large bowl and add the bacon. Form into 6-8 patties and put in the freezer for 30 minutes before grilling. This is not a necessary step, but the meat holds together nicely when the patties go on cold.
Grill patties approximately 5 minutes on each side. Allow them to rest 5 minutes before serving.
Top with cheese if you wish and any of your favorite toppings.
