BBQ Bacon Burgers

I found this recipe in Family Circle, and I adapted it a bit. This was a fast way to make a very flavorful burger. I have been anxious to break out the grill! Let the grilling begin...

BBQ Bacon Burgers
4-5 slices cooked, crumbled bacon
1 1/2 lbs hamburger (or turkey burger)
½ c. (1 oz.) French's fried onions
2-3 T BBQ Sauce (I used Honey BBQ) Plus additional for serving, if desired
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
¼ tsp pepper
6 100 calorie english muffins or thin sandwich buns

Cook bacon in a medium-size nonstick skillet over medium heat, 7 minutes. Set aside and crumble when cooled. Place crumbled bacon in large bowl and add ground meat, fried onions, 2 tbsp. of the BBQ sauce, the Worcestershire sauce and the black pepper to bacon in bowl. Stir to evenly blend. Divide mixture into 6-8 patties. Grill hamburger patties for 6 minutes. Flip over, grill for another 5 minutes or until thermometer inserted into center reads 160 degrees. (Or let George Foreman work his magic. :) Meanwhile, broil English Muffins for 3 minutes, turning once. Stack and serve with hamburger toppings. You can also cook extra bacon and add that too if you want- more bacon is always a good idea. :)

Wow these burgers sound really good! I like the idea of putting the bacon right into them. I may just have to get my husband to dust off the grill for the first time this spring.

Good way to use up my freezer-burned helping hands bacon. Thanks Lou!
