Author: Canadian Living

Bacon adds moistness and, of course, that extra smokiness to burgers. To complete the BLT theme, a dollop of mayonnaise is optional.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated romano cheese
  • 3 slices bacon finely chopped
  • 1 small onion grated
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 lb lean ground pork
  • 4 whole wheat kaiser buns
  • 4 leaves leaf lettuce
  • 1 large tomato sliced

Method

In large bowl, beat egg with water; stir in bread crumbs, cheese, bacon, onion, mustard, salt, herb seasoning and pepper. Add pork; mix just until combined.

Shape into four 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick patties. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container; refrigerate for up to 24 hours or freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator.)

Place patties on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until digital thermometer inserted sideways into centre reads 160°F (71°C), 12 to 14 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut buns in half; toast on grill for 2 minutes. Sandwich burgers, lettuce and tomato in buns.
