I came across this recipe years ago and added the pork sausage to perk it up. My husband claims these are the best burgers he's ever tasted, and I have to agree. They're great served with some crunchy dill pickles.

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom pieces, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons steak sauce
  • 8 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • Leaf lettuce, optional

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon and discard all but 2 tablespoons drippings. Saute onions in drippings until tender. Crumble bacon; add with mushrooms to skillet and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, combine beef, pork, cheese, pepper, garlic powder and steak sauce in a large bowl. Shape into 16 patties. Divide bacon mixture and place over eight of the patties. Place remaining patties on top and press edges tightly to seal.
  3. Grill over medium heat until thermometer reads 160°. Serve on buns, with lettuce if desired.
