Have fun and vary the ground meat. Lamb and turkey both work well with the bacon. A mixture of ground pork and beef or even ground wild boar meat can be fabulous if you can find that in your supermarket! And feel free to add some herbs—finely chopped rosemary and oregano can really complement the flavors of the meat.
