Cheddar Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

When I was a young girl, I did not like to eat anything messy. Hamburgers were condiment free. I couldn’t stand Barbecue because of the mess it made all over your hands, face and clothes. I ate my ice cream only out of bowls… not out of cones because I hated to have melting ice cream dripping on my hands. I always had my mom cut off my corn from the cob because I didn’t want pieces of corn on my face and in my teeth. I have never been a “dip things in ketchup” kind of gal, always opting for no dip or sauce of any kind.

I guess I was a bit of an odd kid that way. I didn’t mind dirt and mud, but messy food was out of the question. I am still a little bit that way, but have gotten over a lot of it as I have gotten older. Still, if I could keep from getting messy as I ate, that would be my preference.

That is one reason why I love these Cheddar Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers. They are so good and no condiments required. If you aren’t into the whole condiment thing, these burgers will be right up your alley. To kick up the flavor without kicking up the mess, replace the pepper with cayenne pepper and the salt for some garlic salt. Just remember to grab a napkin to wipe the drool off your chin as you watch and smell them while they are grilling. You’ll need it!

    My husband will love me forever if I make him these, so I’m saving this recipe!

    Your mom was quite a lucky lady to have a non-messy eating child. I’m sure that’s a rare find :)

    Though I’m a somewhat reluctant vegetarian now, the carnivore in my SO appreciates the scrumptious-ness of this dish. I used to make burgers with mozzarella cheese tucked inside the patty pre-cooking. Have you ever tried that? YUM.

    Hi! You know I love your blog…so I left you a “tag” on my blog – you can play if you want to – not worries if you don’t, but you’re supposed to tell 6 unimportant facts about yourself…which might be hard for you! Nan

    You know, I love bacon (and it’s one of the hubby’s favorites), but I’ve never cared for it wrapped around filet mignon or on hamburgers. Love it with breakfast, on or in various salads, but with meat… not so much. I don’t know about you, but that seems weird to even me!
