My wife whipped up some inside out burgers yesterday.
2lbs of elk burger....could use venison I presume
1lb of bacon
1 chalet onion
Cheese...as much and whatever kind you like I suppose
Cook bacon limp, and brown up chalet
Form two burger patties with the bottom being thicker than the top.
Place bacon, chalet, and cheese onto bottom patty then place other patty on top and seal the two together.
Place in pan and cook patty bottom first, once done flip then place entire pan in oven at 400degr for 6 minutes
It should look something like this when done
My daughter made "wild pig omelets" for me this morning
