AMW Cooks: Bacon Wrapped Burger

My husband loves Bacon!  Who doesn't?
Well, he love Bacon --- a lot!  I don't!  But as a loving wife *ahem* #TrueStory  I make sure to cook him dishes that would wow him visually, emotionally and mentally!

As I have limited ingredients left on the fridge, I was thinking: "Burger again?"   It was almost weekend and I want to surprise the hubby!  Eureka moment --- a pack of Bacon! 

What to do?  I planned on chopping the bacon and combine it with the burger pattie, but I wanted something visually appealing! 

So I made these!  Who would've thought fellow-Bacon lovers were suddenly requesting for recipes?  It is very easy I tell you!

P.S. Sorry there's no step-by-step photos because my hands are extremely dirty!

  • Ground pork/beef.  I used ground pork.
  • Salt, pepper, garlic and onion, chopped mushrooms and cornstarch -  to be mixed with Ground Pork.
  • Egg
  • Strips of bacon
  • Add in salt, pepper, garlic, onion, chopped mushrooms, egg and cornstarch to the ground pork and mix them together!  Feel free to add in a little bit of soy sauce for better taste.
  • Set the pork mixture aside.
  • Gather strips of bacon and pile them in a "crisscross" manner!  It is better if you have more bacon strips but I am into semi-healthy cooking, I cut each bacon strips into 2 so it didn't cover the whole pattie.
  • Feel free to use a toothpick to keep the bacon in place or in my case, I don't know why we don't have toothpicks at home I just hid the ends of each bacon.  (Tips: fry facing the loose ends of bacon down, in that way once it cooked, the bacon won't budge!)

Be very gentle when you handle each pattie!  Cook one side at least 5 minutes before you turn it around to make sure the bacon are crispy and firm enough to hold the burger!

Easy?  Very easy!
Give it a try and tell me how it goes!
