BBQ Bacon Burgers

     A few weeks ago hamburger was on sale and I decided it was time to start practicing for the upcoming holidays. After all, it's grill season and who doesn't love the flavors of bacon and barbeque sauce?
    What makes these burgers so good is that they have all of the flavors mixed right in with the meat and are not only full of flavor, but very moist. The flavored BBQ/mayonnaise mix pull all of the flavors together for one really good burger.

BBQ Bacon Burgers
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sweet and spicy BBQ sauce
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1-1/2 tsp. onion flakes, dried or minced
1-1/2 tsp. mesquite BBQ seasoning
1 lb. ground beef
4 sturdy buns
optional toppings - sliced onion, lettuce leaves and thin sliced tomato

Mix mayonnaise and BBQ sauce. Pour half in a medium bowl and set remaining aside.
On top of mayo/BBQ mixture in bowl, crumble burger. Add spices and bacon. Combine ingredients until well mixed.

Shape into 4 large patties. Heat large skillet and cook patties about 6-7 minutes each side until juices run clear.*

While burgers are cooking, spread buns with remaining BBQ/mayo. Good served with onion, lettuce and tomato on a sturdy bun.

Makes 4.

*For grilling, preheat sprayed grill to medium (about 350 degrees) and cook burgers 6-7 minutes each side until juices run clear.
