Super Bowl Bacon Cheese Turtleburger

The newcomer to the zoo that is bacon-centric food experiments - please give a round of applause for the Bacon Cheese Turtleburger. Created the day the Saints made their first appearance at the big dance, these little guys are sure to be a fan favorite. Who doesn't love a lot of meat on Super Bowl Sunday?

Handmade ground beef patties are topped with sharp cheddar cheese and then wrapped in a bacon weave before the Hebrew Nationals are inserted as the heads, legs and tails. Place them on a rack, cover loosely with foil and then put them into an oven heated to 400 degrees. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the bacon is done - cooked through and a little crispy, but not too crunchy.


And voila! Perfectly cooked Bacon Cheese Turtleburgers.

  10. And quite healthy if you're on the paleo diet like I am! I'm going to make mine with asadero cheese, uncured bacon, ground bison and bison sausage. Yum! Thanks for sharing! :-D

  12. Those look tasty. I recommend making little tinfoil mittens for the turtle's hands next time (shiney side out). They may help the hot dogs from browning too much.

    Droooool.

  24. Sprinkle a little brown sugar on that bacon, and I am IN!

    Lightly candied bacon is so addictive. Love the turtles...they're adorable!
