    Another option for some or all of your bacon is to process it when semi frozen or very cold in a food processor until minced then mix into your ground beef and season as you like, then cook the burgers. SO good!

    I just started the 2 week challenge today and had these for supper. I made the patties and my Dad did them on the grill for me; yummy! I used Portobello mushrooms and the taste was great. I didn't miss the bun taste wise, but I did mess wise, lol. I used romaine lettuce instead of leaf lettuce and it kept breaking on me. Next time I'll try making the oopsie bread. I made two plain patties with no spices for my dogs, and they were thrilled, lol.

    I use ground Bison and because it is drier than Beef I add a couple tablespoons Olive Oil per pound of meat when I am gently mixing it. This would work with ground beef too. I also almost always cook my meats in saved (organic free range) bacon fat.

    What percentage of fat in the beef do I buy?

    Here's a question: do you have a recipe for home cured bacon that is sugar free? Most store bought bacon has sugar and nitrates in it, other bacon that's bought in health food stores is also cured in sugar. Even my local butcher's bacon that's cured on site has sugar in it. Other recipes that I've found online call for several cups of sugar or maple syrup. Really, really trying to avoid the s-words in all their forms.

    I need a substitution for mushrooms. Also, I don't eat seafood. Could I just substitute another protein for any fish recipe? THANK YOU!!!
