We came across a recipe called “Poor Man’s Filet” a long time ago- and this is our variation. I don’t really understand the title, since filet doesn’t have pieces of veggies in it, but hey, I’m not one to argue over good food. I especially enjoy the bacon wrapped around the burger. I served mine up with my favorite homemade buns, which makes all the difference in the world!
-1-1.5 lbs ground beef
-3-5 slices bacon
-3-5 slices of cheese (we use Provolone)
-1/4 of a green pepper, chopped fine
-1/4 cup carrots, chopped fine or shredded
-1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
-1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
-1/2 teaspoon black pepper
-1 teaspoon chives
Chop veggies as small as possible.
Nothing like fresh chives!
Mix veggies, garlic salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and ground beef. Form into patties.
