Bacon is almost like a drug to me. I love it so much that when I eat a bacon cheeseburger, I pick off all the bacon and then regret it when there’s no bacon left to enjoy on my burger. This burger makes that problem disappear. The rolled oats, milk and flax seed make it extremely juicy and very filling. You would never know you’re getting a little extra fiber and healthy Omega-3 fatty acids as well as a few other vitamins when you sink your teeth into this amazing burger.
Yes, I know bacon is a fatty meat, but your body does need some fat. Just remember to buy bacon that does not contain sodium nitrite, sodium nitrate, colorings or flavors. I buy bacon from a local butcher or from Whole Foods. The same thing goes for the meat. I get mine from my local butcher. The beef is all grass fed and never given antibiotics, hormones. etc. It’s 100% meet and it practically melts in your mouth!
