  2. Mix together the ground beef, water, chili paste, chopped bacon and spices. Shape the burgers with wet hands.
  3. Wrap a bacon slice around each burger. Use a brush to apply olive oil to the meat and grill each side for 5-10 minutes or until cooked through. You can also use the stove and fry them in a pan on medium-high heat.

Tip!

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.

Don't forget the condiments! Our homemade ketchup—a sugar-free and natural alternative to regular ketchup—is featured... why not give it a try today?

    I really enjoyed this burger. I have liked everything I made so far. The pepperoni pizza is one of my favorites

    Around the sides of the burger - if you look at the picture, you can follow that example.

    What is wasabi paste, not heard of it in England. Many thanks

    Dena, I always cook these on the stove, grilling with bacon wrap just creates way too much flare up. I fry them over medium to medium high heat until brown and the lower the heat to medium low until cooked to desired internal temperature. It takes about 30 minutes total for medium. Make sure to use a heavy bottom skillet.

    is the bacon cooked or uncooked before placing in the meat?

    Uncooked, so it is flexible enough to bend around the burger.
