Bacon-Wrapped BLT Beef Burgers

July 17

The BLT is one of my favourite sandwiches, so when I saw burgers wrapped in bacon during a trip to America, I had a brain wave. The BLT burger was born!

  1. Preheat the grill to medium. In a large bowl, combine the minced beef, garlic, tomato ketchup, mustard and a generous pinch of salt and black pepper.
  2. Divide the mixture into 4–6 burgers and wrap each burger with two slices of bacon. Arrange the burgers on a grill tray and place under the hot grill for 4–5 minutes on each side.
  3. Serve the burgers in toasted burger buns with a good dollop of mayonnaise, a slice of tomato and shredded lettuce.
