PAUL BUNYAN BURGERS
Taste of Home

  • 6 bacon strips, diced (you can use bacon bits, but it's not as good as the real bacon)
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms (canned mushrooms work fine too)
  • 3 thin onion slices
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 pound ground beef (I used sirloin)
  • 3 slices process American cheese
  • 3 hamburger buns, split


In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels. In the drippings, saute mushrooms and onion until tender. Transfer to a large bowl with a slotted spoon; add bacon.

In another bowl, combine the egg, Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt, salt, pepper and horseradish; sprinkle beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into six 1/4-in.-thick patties.

Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat for 5-6 minutes a side or until a thermometer reads 160° and meat juices run clear. Serve on buns. Yield: 3 servings.
