A BLT Burger

Sorry, no photo on this one. I do have to plan better.

A recent controversy among FB friends over catsup/ketchup was brought to mind by this recipe. Whichever you call the condiment, it adds a bit to this BLT burger. The original recipe came from Delish.com and there are only minor changes that do not have much affect on the Nutritional information.

Ingredients for four burgers:

1/4 cup ketchup (we prefer the sweetness of Heinz)
1/4 cup Light Miracle Whip
1 tablespoon French's Dijon Mustard
1 1/4 pounts lean ground beef
1/2 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 slices bacon
4 hamburger buns (we prefer potato bread buns -- outstanding!)

While the grill is preheating, blend together the ketchup, Miracle Whip and mustard. Mix half of this into the ground beef, blending well.

Shape beef into four patties about 3/4 inch thick. Sprinkle with the salt (we use Lawry's Seasoned) and pepper, then wrap with two of the bacon strips, crossing each others at right angles. If necessary, use a toothpick to hold, but be sure to remove before cooking. Place patties on the hot grill rack and cook about 12 minutes total, turning once.

The buns can be placed on the grill to toast during the last couple of minutes of cooking.

Serve with lettuce and sliced tomatoes, along with the remaining ketchup dressing.

Calories should remain about 540 even with condiment changes, with total fat at 30g, carbs at 27g, protein 35 g and a negligible amount of sugar.
