1/2 cup finely chopped onion – $ .25
2 garlic cloves, minced – $ .5
1 tablespoon Montreal Steak Seasoning – $ .18
1 lb. bacon – $2.49

Recipe total – $13.78
Cost per serving – $1.72

Prep Day: Add a little olive oil to a saute pan. When the oil is sizzling add the onion and the garlic. Turn down the heat and sauté until the onion is soft. If you have time you can go ahead and caramelize it for a more mellow flavor.

Add the ground beef to a large bowl and mix in the cooled sauteed onion and remaining ingredients (except the bacon) with your hands.

Lay two slices of bacon on the counter in an X. Form 1/8 of the mixture into a patty and set it on top of the center of the X. Fold the ends of the bacon over the top. Repeat with remaining meat mixture. Wrap individually and freeze.

Serve Day: Heat olive oil in a heavy skillet on high heat until it sizzles. Lay the patty in the pan with the seam side of the bacon down. Reduce heat to medium. Cook for 7 minutes each side or until the patties are done. Pure Yummy!



I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
