"Lighter" Bacon Cheeseburgers

Submitted by: NIKKISTHIN

Introduction

This is a great way to have the taste of bacon, beef, and cheese with a lot less fat. Chopping up the bacon allows you to remove some of the visible fat, and have bacon in every bite. Another plus is that you can freeze the burgers and have a ready meal without the mess of cooking bacon everytime. This makes big quarter pound burgers. Make it even lighter by making the patties smaller. This is a great way to have the taste of bacon, beef, and cheese with a lot less fat.

    Made these for dinner. It made 6 average sized patties- I wouldn't have wanted any bigger for our buns. I cooked them in the oven but next time I'd grill them for a better "feel". When I recalculated the totals using my ingredients they came out to 355 cals including the bun and 1tbsp of mayo. - 1/23/11
