Simple Bacon Cheeseburger Roll

Go bunless or go home. Wait. That’s just weird. Yes, that’s my weird way of saying that with this Simple Bacon Cheeseburger Roll there is no bun needed.

Would you look at that bacon-wrapped meat, just waiting to be put into the oven to make everyone come and ask you forty times when dinner will be ready? This is the worst and the best thing about this recipe. All the smells. And the waiting. Because of the bacon and the cheese and the spices and the meat – everyone will be so eager to eat this delicious-smelling dish. It’s the best! And the worst. Life is very hard because of the good smells and the waiting.

Note how simple this is to make. It is also worth a big mention that this can be made ahead of time (up to two days), then slid into the oven in time to bake for dinner (and to frustrate all the people with the smells).

First, lay your bacon in a pan.

Then press your hamburger meat over the top and sprinkle on everything that makes it smell better and taste better.

Then roll it up. Do you see how easy this is?

You will bake this and smell this and try to be nice while you have to smell it but still wait eat it. We pray for strength to make it through these hard times.

Then slice it and try to remember to throw out some form of fruit and vegetable because really? We’ve forgotten this nutritional need because today we’re all just in it for the bacon and the smells.

    This looks incredible! Can’t wait to give it a try. Do you think adding a layer of sliced tomatoes and/or pickles inside would work or would it be too wet?

    I think I’d add those after baking just before serving. :)

    Mmmmmmmmmmm!!! We enjoyed this recipe just now, Laura. I lined the pan with baker paper and used it to roll the bacon over the meat. It made for less greasy fingers. Thank you Laura, a real winner!
