Mom's Silver Dollar Steak N Bacon Burgers
My family was my inspiration! We love grilling out and like to try new things...I came up with this "steak" burger that is out of this world delicious! I buy the steaks on sale and grind the meat myself! The taste and texture can't be beat. The kids love the smaller size of the burgers and Hawaiian Rolls work perfect for soaking up the yummy juices!
1 1/2 pounds ground beef sirloin
1 pound ground beef ribeye
1/4 cup minced vidalia onion
1/4 cup Contadina 3 cheese bread crumbs
2 Tablespoons A1 Steak sauce
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon ground Sea Salt
12 Slices Thick-cut Beef bacon strips
Virgin Olive oil to brush onto grill rack
1 Package of 12 Hawaiian Rolls
1 Large Head Iceburg Lettuce chopped coarsely
2 Large Tomatoes Sliced thinly
A1 Steak sauce for brushing buns
Preheat Gas Grill to Medium/High heat
Place cast Iron skillet on grill to preheat as well
To prepare patties:
Add meat, onion, garlic, and A1 to large bowl, mix well with mixing spoon(I use a bamboo spoon with a hole in the middle)
Add bread crumbs and salt, combine.
Form meat into 12 equal burgers making a thumb sized dent in the middle of each. Cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge until time to cook.
Cook bacon slices in cast iron skillet until browned.
Remove bacon from grease to drain on towels.
After removing used skillet, brush grill rack with the olive oil.
Place each patty on the grill, close lid and cook for 4-6 minutes, flip patties over and cook additional 4-6 minutes.
To assemble burgers, use a teaspoon of A1 to rub each side of the roll first,then place a burger onto each sliced Dollar Roll, use one piece of bacon broken in half for each burger, use 1/4 Cup lettuce and 1 or 2 slices of tomato for each.
Patties can be prepared the night before and stored in an airtight glass container. Because of the use of onions, plastic ware would soak up the flavor and smell of the onions, so glass is preferred.
Do Not press the juices out of the cooking burgers! Just let the grill do all the work!
If you prefer a grilled bun for your burger, after cooking the burgers, place the buns around the edge of the grill to get it a little toasty! In a minute or two, they will be ready to go!
