Paleo Bacon Burgers: A Breakfast for Champions

Bacon Wrapped Rosemary Slider

This recipe for Paleo Bacon Burgers is from my new pal, Juli Bauer from PaleOMG.  Make sure to check out her site as every post is a sassy sitcom (and I mean that in a good way).

Sometimes I don’t want to eat leftovers for breakfast.  Shocker, I know.

I live out of Tupperware. It’s like my weird smelling friend that follows me everywhere. But sometimes I lose my friend. And when I lose it, I stress out. How do I lose freakin’ Tupperware?  Anyways, when I don’t have to pack breakfast in Tupperware and actually have time to cook a hot breakfast, I get a little wild.

This is what those wonderful mornings look like:

  1. I make coffee.  Duh.  Life is stupid without it.
  2. I chat with Laura about our love lives (or lack thereof), then usually sing a tune to her. She enjoys it.
  3. I then turn on some sort of music, prance around smiling, add some kind of meat to a pan, and while bacon grease pops everywhere, I prance more while sipping my coffee with coconut milk in it.
  4. Content Juli at her finest.
  5. I then eat in front of my computer, updating myself on life via fbook and myspace. Kidding, I don’t have a myspace at this point in my life. I used to LOVE myspace. I’ve moved on though. Or I eat in the bathroom. No, not on the toilet you sicko. I set my food on the sink and try to use one hand to masara my lashes while the other hand feeds my pie hole.
  6. You’re jealous of my mornings, aren’t you? You should be.

What you need:

  • 1 lb grass fed ground beef
  • 6-8 slices of bacon, cut in half
  • 6 teaspoons duck fat (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

What you do:

  1. Pull out a medium-large size mixing bowl. Add your ground beef and seasonings to the bowl and mix thoroughly.
  2. Form the sliders into 6-8 small patties.
  3. Place your half slices of bacon down in sets of two so they form an X. Place slider in the middle of the X and wrap the bacon around it. It’s greasy enough, it won’t move. If you are using duck fat, plop a teaspoon in the middle of the slider before you wrap it with bacon. I wanted extra fat, OK?Bacon Wrapped Rosemary Breakfast Sliders
  4. Heat up a large skillet under medium-high heat. Place sliders in the hot pan and cook for about 4-6 minutes per side, or depending how rare-well done you like them cooked.
  5. Eat your breakfast sliders over some mixed greens while you sip your coffee with coconut milk, all while on the front porch.  Fabulous.Bacon Wrapped Rosemary Breakfast Sliders
