I tried these last night for the first time. Before I cook a recipe I read all the reviews to get ideas of how I may want to amend it. I dropped the bread crumbs (Italian) to 1.2 C per pound, added in a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce, dribbled in a touch of Tobasco Chipotle (it gets hot quickly!), a few passes of Adobo seasoning, and about 2 cloves of fresh garlic per pound. I also added a few squeezes of Deli Mustard. The twist I did was I added ALL the ingredients to the beef- including the sauce ingredients. Wrapped with bacon, and grilled. They were excellent!! Yes, I admit that adding the sauce ingredients was a bit of an accident as I had a child or two continually vying for attention. :) I made up 5 lbs of this using my Kitchen Aid and now I have 4 more meals in the freezer ready to be cooked. Very good!

The flavor was good with a texture very similar to meatloaf. Overall, I found it to be too dry, and I suspect the 3/4 cup of breadcrumbs was the culprit. Perhaps reducing it to 1/2 cup may solve the dilemma... My husband and son approved of it, therefore, it will remain in the "once in a while" file. Overall, this is a solid 3 star recipe as written. Thank you for the submission POFELY.

I made these on my grill and they worked out great. The sauce is what really makes these outstanding, not the bacon. I also added a 1/2 tsp of minced garlic to the recipe.

My husband took his first bite of his "filet" tonight, and immediately said, "This is a five star recipe -- I can tell after the first bite." So I'm dutifully listing it at five stars. :) It is quite good and really simple to make -- it's got a bit of a "meatloaf" quality to it (in a good way), but it looks more elegant. I used pre-cooked bacon to wrap the patties, as we prefer crispy bacon. Other than the bacon, I followed the recipe exactly.

Maybe this should be called "Happy Hubby Filets"! My husband really loved this one and asked me to put it in my regular rotation. This was easy to make, very tasty and freezes well for future lunches. Thanks for the recipe Vickie!

I saw this recipe a while back and thought it looked interesting, then last night my wife suggested to make this for dinner and we loved it. They have such a nice flavor and make a very good meal. We had some left over, so I took one in to work the next day and reheated it, and everybody kept commenting on how good it smelled and looked.
