Serves: 4 patties
Ingredients
  • 1 lb. organic ground beef
  • 4 tablespoons of Paleo Pesto
  • 5 strips of uncured bacon (cooked and diced)
  • 1 tablespoon Montreal Steak spice
Instructions
  1. Cover your baking sheet with aluminum foil. Set aside.
  2. Set broiler on high, arranging rack so that the patties will be about 2 inches from the heat.
  3. Mix ground beef and Montreal Steak spice in a mixing bowl.
  4. Make 8 wide and thin patties out of the ground beef mixture. Set them aside.
  5. Place 4 patties on your baking dish (aligned in the center…see picture below).
  6. Pour 1 tablespoon of pesto on the middle of each patty. Place bacon pieces on top of pesto (see picture below).
  7. Top off with remaining 4 patties and pinch the meat around the edges to keep inside ingredients from coming out.
  8. Place patties in oven and broil for 6 minutes.
  9. Carefully flip each patty and broil for another 6 minutes, or until meat is well done.
  10. Remove from oven and let cool off for a bit.
