This week's theme for My Girl, Paula was lunch. I couldn't decide at first what to make until I spotted this recipe in the July/August Cooking With Paula Deen Magazine. It was good, but I think next time I will do my own seasonings. Jimmy ate 4 of them! It was his first week of high school and he was starving!!!
1 1/2 lbs ground round
1 T dill pickle juice
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
3/4 tsp onion powder
3/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
6 slices sharp Cheddar cheese, quartered
12 slices fully cooked bacon, cut in half
1 (15 oz) pkg miniature wheat sandwich buns or 12 (3 inch) dinner rolls
24 hamburger dill pickle slices
In a large bowl, combine ground round, pickle juice, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper; mix gently to combine. Shape mixture into 12 (3 inch) patties.
Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat until hot. Add patties; cook for 2 minutes. Turn patties; cook for 1 minute. Top with cheese; cook for 1-2 minutes or until patties are done and cheese is melted. Top with 2 half-pieces of bacon.
Spread ketchup on cut sides of buns. Place pickles on bottom of buns; top with patties, and cover with bun tops.
