FoodThoughtsOfaChefWannabe: Bacon Cheddar Burger Roll

Meet Chris, a foodie, a blogger and a chef wanna-be.  Check out her blog, too, and tell her Aunt Betty sent you!

I surely think this is a grand idea, and the ingredient possibilities in the middle are endless.  What a wonderful, quick way to feed a crowd and nobody has to hang out by the grill all day.  I can get Mr. Jim to put it on the smoker making it even more delicious!

I think this could just as easily be sliced, and served with potatoes and veggies.  It is all up to you guys!!

2lbs ground beef
2 tbsp. of your favorite seasoned salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp onion powder
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
8-10 strips of bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled
2 cups grated or cubed cheddar cheese

Mix all ingredients except bacon and cheese.  When they are thoroughly combined, turn your mixture out until a sheet of tin foil.  Flatten it out, as thick or thin as you want, just remember you will be rolling it and you need it to stay together so not to thin!  When it is pressed out to your liking, top it with the cheese and bacon.  Then using your foil as support, start rolling the meat.  Just keep pulling over the foil and then pull it out so it doesn't get stuck, continue until it is all rolled up.

When it is done, carefully move it to a cookie sheet.  *or start with the foil already ON the cookie sheet so you don't have to transfer it*  Make sure it is seam side down and close up any holes that might have been made.  

Place it in a preheated 375 degree oven for 40-50 minutes.  Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and make sure to let me know if you make it and how you adjust it to your taste!!
