Pork Burgers: Something Different for the Grill

This recipe for pork burgers is, without doubt, one of the best recipes I've ever come up with - even though a friend of mine claims burgers can only be made from beef and so these are actually sausage. Whatever they are, they're amazingly good combining ground pork with bacon, onion, and parmesan cheese. I usually serve them with homemade garlic/pepper buns, but a commercial bun, or even a kaiser roll, would work well. Add your favorite condiments and you're in, well, pig heaven. (Larger image.) Makes 3.

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb. ground pork

  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • pinch of ground black pepper

1. Dice bacon into 1/4 inch pieces.

2. Mix all ingredients together (hands work best).
