Texas MesquiteBurger

Texas Mesquite Burger

Delicious bacon mesquite grilled burgers.

Ingredients

1 1/2 lbs 80% lean ground beef
12 slices bacon, uncooked
1 1/2 tablespoon grill seasoning (ex McCormicks Mesquite)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon minced dried onion
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper

Directions

Begin by chopping the raw bacon finely with a sharp knife. I slice it in half, then in strips, then dice it. 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 I think 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.

Grilled Barbecued Bacon-Chicken Skewers

Turn four everyday ingredients into an extraordinary appetizer!

Ingredients

15 bamboo skewers (6 inch)
3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb)
4 large green onions
1 package (2.1 oz) refrigerated fully cooked bacon (15 pieces)
1/2 cup barbecue sauce

Directions

Soak skewers in water at least 30 minutes to prevent burning. Meanwhile, cut each chicken breast in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise to make 10 (about 1-inch) pieces. Cut onions into 2-inch pieces (30 pieces total). Cut bacon slices in half crosswise.
Heat gas or charcoal grill. Push 1 skewer through end of 1 bacon piece, then through middle of 1 chicken piece and back through other end of bacon piece; add 2 onion pieces, then repeat with another bacon piece and chicken piece. Place on large plate or tray. Repeat to make remaining kabobs.
Place kabobs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 5 minutes. Turn kabobs; brush with half of the barbecue sauce. Cover; cook 5 minutes. Turn kabobs; brush with remaining sauce. Cover; cook about 1 minute longer or until chicken is no longer pink in center. If desired, serve with additional barbecue sauce for dipping.
