Bacon Wrapped Beef Patties & Green Beans

Bacon Wrapped Beef Patties


6 bacon strips
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup crushed saltines
2 Tablespoons chopped onion
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup ketchup
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard


1. Preheat broiler. We used the high setting, the distance of the food from the heating element determined the cooking time.

2. Place bacon on a microwave-safe plate lined with microwave-safe paper towels. Cover with another paper towel; microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until cooked but not crisp.

3. Combine the eggs, saltines, onion, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

4. Add beef into mixture and mix well. Shape beef mixture into six patties.

5. Wrap bacon strips around patties; secure with toothpicks. Place patties on broiler pan.

6. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat for about 6 minutes.

7. Combine the ketchup, brown sugar and mustard in a small bowl.

8. Turn patties then top with the ketchup mixture. Broil 6 to 7 minutes longer or until meat is no longer pink.

9. Prepare Green Beans with Basil (recipe below) while patties are broiling. Makes 6 servings.
