Bacon Scallion Burgers
Grilled hamburgers are at all-time summer treat. These are mixed with crumbled bacon and chopped scallions for rich, satisfying flavor. For a little more punch, top the burgers with a strip of cooked bacon, if desired.

1 pound ground beef
3 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 thinly sliced scallions, white and green parts

Prepare a charcoal or gas grill so that the coals or heating elements are medium-hot.

In a bowl, mix together the ground beef, crumbled bacon, scallions, salt and pepper. Form the meat into 4 patties and grill, turning once, for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until the burgers reach the desired degree of doneness.
