Filet-Mignon Burger

My son-in-law thought of the perfect name for these burgers...it stuck and they will be forever called "THE Filet-Mignon Burger". Burgers of all kinds are a favorite at our house. It doesn't matter whether is winter or summer, we eat them. I have to say though, I've eaten a few burgers in my day that just didn't measure up to the "BURGER" test. My burgers have to not only taste good...(no one wants a boring burger) but they need to be juicy and always topped with some kind of cheese as well. This burger most definitely passed the "burger test". I'm guessing it will pass yours too.

Filet-Mignon Burger

Ground beef (1 lb makes approximately 3-4 burgers, just depends on how big and thick you want them)
liquid smoke
season salt
onion powder
garlic powder
1-2 lbs thick sliced bacon
cheddar cheese, sliced

Cover cookie sheet with tinfoil. Place 2 slices of bacon onto pan, forming and X. Repeat for the amount of burgers you will be cooking. Form hamburger patties. Place 3-4 drops of liquid smoke on each patty, apply seasoning. Place each burger on the X formed with the bacon. Wrap bacon up around the burger. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the meat...so watch it carefully. When burger is almost done, place cheese slice on top of burger and continue until cheese is melted. Remove from oven. Place burger on bun and top with desired condiments. ENJOY!

Hubby said it was the BEST BACON CHEESEBURGER that he's ever eaten!
I will have to say it scores right up there at the top on my list too!
