Slater's 50/50 beef and bacon burgers

Found these at Sam's club today. OH MY GOSH. These are incredible. They are frozen burgers that are half ground beef and half ground bacon. Twelve generous sized burgers to a package for less than $16.

Zero carbs, and full of smoky bacon flavor. I figure about $1.30 a serving.

Wow! I've actually had these at the San Diego restaurant location, and they are INCREDIBLE. Probably totally out of my calorie range these days, but I'll be sure to pick some up for my husband if I see them.

I did some research. Apparently they are being test marketed in CA, TX and AZ only at Sam's Club. I'm going to get some more and put them in the freezer just in case they stop carrying them. 510 calories per burger.

Sorry about that. Maybe they will go nation wide soon. I gave my husband a choice between a ribeye and a bacon burger for dinner tonight and he took the burger!

While the burgers were on the grill, I diced up about a quarter pound of bacon and fried it, and when it was getting nice and crisp I added about half a pound of sliced baby bella mushrooms. When the burgers came off the grill, I dumped the mushrooms out of the skillet and put the grilled burgers in the skillet and topped them with the mushrooms. I put a slice of swiss cheese on each burger, turned the stove down low, and put a lid on the skillet until the cheese melted. Yum! Bacon mushroom burgers.

Today is my husband's birthday, and guess what he wants for dinner! Mushroom bacon burgers! I tried to sell him on that ribeye again, but the burgers won out. That's three times in 8 days that he has asked for them.

WOE: Keto/LCHF/IF/insulin resistance reversal
This sounds mega awesome!!!

I would like to try a copy cat homemade recipe, but I have never attempted to create ground bacon. Ideas or suggestions are welcome.

I am thinking to semi-freeze the bacon then use a food processor to grind it.

I made these and they were good, but I am thinking the type of bacon makes a big difference. My observations:
  • I don't have a meat grinder and ended up using my food processor. I partially froze the bacon but none the less it turned into what looked like a ball of bacon lard, lol, which in retrospect makes complete sense.
  • I let the ground beef and "bacon lard ball" come to room temperature so they would be easier to combine.
  • I cooked them in a skillet on the stove top as I do not have a grill. I'm sure they would be fabulous grilled.
  • Quite a bit of fat came out of the burger as it cooked. I used Kirkland Signature Premium Bacon, which is not a thick cut bacon,
  • Side note: I have purchased and cooked this bacon a number of times and I think it isn't very salty like I remember bacon being growing up.
  • The final product was tasty but not good/special enough to repeat the process with bacon, HOWEVER, I might try it with ground pepperoni.

I would give the Slater's product a try if I becomes available here.

Thanks again for giving me the idea.

Sharon, if you see this, could you check out the thread for creamy breakfast lasagna? A couple of us have asked to find out how long you baked your extra large muffins for, and at what temp. I know this is off-topic, but it doesn't appear that you've read that thread for quite some time. Thanks!

Replay, the Kirkland bacon doesn't have the "salty" taste that we know with bacon, good taste though. But it has more fat than the average bacon. I used to buy it a lot, specifically when I needed some bacon fat. But when it went to the same price as bacon I can buy in the grocery store, I quit buying it.

Replay, Nom Nom Paleo makes a pretty yummy “Big-O Bacon Burger”. It takes frozen bacon and puts it in the processor. It adds more umami punch with mushrooms. You can check out the recipe online.
