    MY bacon turtles!

    I know there is another thread about these, but I wanted to share my experience making them!

    1) weave bacon (the thicker the bacon, the easier this is)

    2) add the first burger patty

    3) add cheese and prepare the second patty (I used sharp cheddar and pepper jack and it was AMAZING)

    4) add second patty and more cheese

    5) fold bacon-weave over patties (and turn over)

    6) add 'legs, head, and tail' (I used spicy sausage, but this can also be done with hot dogs)

    7) use toothpicks to hold sausages in place. carefully place on grill (don't make fun of my tiny webber! )

    8) wait! (these take a LONG time to cook all the way through!)

    9) get ready to eat! (I lost the tail trying to plate it, but my pup sure enjoyed it. The legs got pretty charred, hoping to fix that next time)

    10) enjoy! (don't forget to stock up on heartburn meds!)

    That looks delicious! I'm assuming each serving has at least 3 days worth of Weight Watchers points, all the good stuff does. LOL

    Re: MY bacon turtles!

    When I do it again, I plan to trim the bacon just a little before folding it over the patties. I ended up with a LOT of bacon on the bottom this time (and the inner layers did not cook as much as I would have liked). Also, I used the extra bacon (which I had a LOT of) to make bacon-wrapped asparagus. Wish I had pics of this, but that will have to wait until next time too!

    Webers will always be the KING of outdoor cooking at my place....and, despite their inconvenience, the charcoal ones are the VERY best.

    What makes them inconvenient? The fact that most grilled food tastes much better using them?

    As to getting the fire ready, I use a chimney and can be cooking in 15 minutes. I also use real hardwood lump charcoal (much purer) as my main fuel source and not formed charcoal briquettes for cooking, which means no binders, fines, etc.

    That actually sounds awesome! I think I would stuff them with blue cheese! I used to work at a golf club and their turkey-bacon-blu burger was one of my favorite sandwiches!
