Father's Day is on Sunday, but you can treat dad all week with meals made for men. This week, we'll offer (stereotypically) dad-friendly recipes. Today's comes from Taste of Home magazine.


6 bacon strips, diced

1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

3 thin onion slices

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish

1 pound ground beef

3 slices processed American cheese

3 hamburger buns, split


In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels. In the drippings, saute mushrooms and onion until tender. Transfer to a large bowl with a slotted spoon; add bacon.

In another bowl, combine the egg, Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt, salt, pepper and horseradish; sprinkle beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into six 1/4-inch-thick patties.

Divide bacon mixture among three patties. Top with a cheese slice; fold in corners of cheese. Top with remaining patties; seal edges.

Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat for 5-6 minutes a side or until a thermometer reads 160 degrees and meat juices run clear. Serve on buns. Yield: 3 servings.
