Beef 'n' Pork Burgers

Serves: 8

The combination of ground beef and pork is the secret behind these juicy burgers. The never-fail burgers are ideal for summer grilling, so I depend on them time and again. Everyone loves them. Plus, you can easily double or triple the recipe for large get-togethers.

Dovetailing Tip: Save the bacon drippings to use in the Grilled Potatoes & Onions in today's meal.

In a small skillet, cook bacon, onion and garlic over medium heat until the bacon is crisp; drain and place in a small bowl.
