The BLT is one of my favourite sandwiches, so when I saw burgers wrapped in bacon during a trip to America, I had a brain wave. The BLT burger was born!!

Serves 4
500g (1lB 2oz) beef mince
2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
8–12 sliceS of streaky Bacon

To serve
4–6 burger buns, toasted
1 large vine tomato, cut into chunky slices
2 heads of baby gem lettuce, finely sliced

Preheat the grill to medium. In a large bowl, combine the minced beef, garlic, tomato ketchup, mustard and a generous pinch of
salt and black pepper. Divide the mixture into 4–6 burgers and wrap each burger with two slices of bacon. Arrange the burgers on a grill tray and place under the hot grill for 4–5 minutes on each side.

Serve the burgers in toasted burger buns with a good dollop of mayonnaise, a slice of tomato and shredded lettuce.
