 Bacon Cheeseburger Patty

PER SERVING (1 patty): 205 calories, 8.5g fat, 455mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 27g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

You've been putting cheese and bacon on TOP of your burgers your whole life. Maybe it's time to get a little crazy... cheese-stuffed bacon burger, anyone?



Ingredients:
4 oz. raw extra-lean ground beef
1 tbsp. precooked real crumbled bacon (like the kind by Oscar Mayer)
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light cheese (any flavor)
Optional: salt and black pepper 

Directions:
Season beef with salt and pepper, if you like. Combine beef with bacon and knead to evenly distribute bacon. Form into a ball and, using your thumb, make a large, hollow indentation in the ball (past the center but not all the way through). Fill the hole with cheese and squeeze the meat to seal, making sure no cheese is exposed. Flatten slightly into a thick patty.

Bring a skillet or grill pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove. Place patty in the skillet/pan, cover, and cook for 4 - 7 minutes per side, depending on how well-done you like your burger. (Don't press on the patty with your spatula -- your patty might ooze cheese!)

Serve and enjoy!
