It's A GP 2 For 1!!!!


Who can beat 2 for 1!



So as you can tell by some of the pictures I have quite a few recipes marked in this cookbook - I tend to pair things up that sound good together and then make them both for a whole new meal!  As I was marking recipes Bacon-Stuffed Burgers sounded good and the recipe for Hot German Potato Salad sounded like a perfect match!


Who wouldn't want a burger that was made of ground beef, sausage, A-1 and some parm then stuffed with bacon and onion - really simple and quick!

 Put a spoonful of this Hot German Potato Salad beside it and it makes a perfect meal!


I fried up enough bacon for both recipes then removed enough for the potato salad then put the onions in the bacon grease and sauteed them for the burgers!  When a recipe calls for crispy crumbled bacon I always cut my bacon up into bite-sized pieces and fry them that way instead of cooking the whole stripes and then crumbling!

I love it when recipes share a similar flavor together at a meal - plus I can do things once (like fry the bacon) for both recipes!

While the whole potatoes for the potato salad boiled, I pattied out the burgers and "stuffed" them!

I cut the potatoes up while the burgers were on the grill and made the dressing!

It was a big hit - even My Cowgirl (who one might call a finicky eater-I just call her picky) even liked it - I am not a big fan of the flavor of vinegar but this was not overbearing like I was afraid it might be!

And another 5 thumbs up for both (so that is a total of 10 thumbs!) of these   Gooseberry Patch recipes!


Bacon-Stuffed Burgers:

4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/4 c. onion chopped
4 oz. can mushroom pieces, drained and diced
    (I omitted because we aren't mushroom people)
1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. ground pork sausage
1/4 c. grated Parm. Cheese
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 T steak sauce

Hot German Potato Salad:

6 potatoes, boiled whole until tender - about 20 min
1 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 c. onion sauteed in bacon drippings
dressing: 1c. plus 2 T vinegar, 1 1/2 T sugar, 1 1/12 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper bring to boil
- cube potatoes, mix with bacon and onions and pour dressing over and serve!
