Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers
About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles, veggies, seafood, soups
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am proud of my cast iron collection. My father gave it to me, and I keep it seasoned and in good condition. I love to make roux in my large cast iron skillet. I could not live without my George Forman grill, my KitchenAid stand mixer, my steamer, or my Williams-Sonoma recipe organizer.
My cooking triumphs
My husband and I cook together so each and every time we produce a dish we can share with others and be proud of, I consider that a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
My meringues are true tragedies. They usually look like frisbees and consequently get thrown out the door into the yard (like a frisbee).

Scallops with White Wine Sauce II
Light and delicious. We used bay scallops instead of sea scallops and broiled for 1.5 minutes on each side. We served them on a bed of baby lettuce and added freshly shredded parmesan cheese on top.

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers
This recipe is a keeper. We used green onions instead of a regular onion. We also dressed with baby greens and radicchio, tomato, dill pickle slices, mayo, ketchup, purple onion rings, and spicy-sweet mustard. All served on buttered then toasted light wheat buns. We pulled the bacon off after cooking the burgers nine minutes on the Forman grill. The bacon wasn't crispy, and we did not want the added fat. Also, we used only the egg yolk, not the white.

Grilled Venison Backstrap
The two marinades simply did not achieve a less than gamey flavor.
