Beef ‘n’ Pork Burgers

It's has been one of those days. It's a Guard weekend so Christopher is working. The girls and I ran into town for they needed some book covers for school. Our front porch was begging for fall decorations. And for some strange unexplainable reason the cleaning bug bit me today. By dinner time our home was spotless and the scent of apple cider candles filled the air. I guess fall isn't that bad of a season after all.
Now onto the burgers. They were so monstrous, moist and delicious. While sautéing the bacon, onion and garlic my bacon never did get crisp. I then let that mixture cool and put it through a food processor so my finicky eater wouldn't see pieces of onion. I used a food scale and make my burgers 6 oz. They were amazing and everyone enjoyed them more than my ranch and cheese burgers.
Recipe found in Quick Cooking 2003.
4 bacon strips, diced
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1-1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp dried parsley flakes
1/4 tsp dried marjoram
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp pepper
1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
8 hamburger buns, split and toasted
In a skillet, cook bacon, onion and garlic over medium heat until the bacon is crisp; drain and place in a bowl. Stir in bread crumbs, egg, water, parsley, salt, marjoram, paprika and pepper. Crumble beef and pork over the mixture and mix well. shape into eight 3/4-inch thick patties.
Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat for 9-12 minutes or until juices run clear, turning occasionally. Serve on bun.

YUM! These sound delicious. I love almost any kind of burger. You add bacon and onion and I KNOW I'd love these.
Food processor is brilliant. Alex spent way too much time picking out the smallest pieces of onion and mushroom out of his chicken spaghetti the other night. I just kept rolling my eyes.
