Coonass Turtle Burgers
Lean ground beef for as many burgers as you need
Seasonings to personal taste
Beef hot dogs
Sharp cheddar cheese (sliced nice & thick)
Lots of thick smoked bacon
Deli burger buns
Make your patties, including seasoning. Top each patti with a thick covering of sharp cheddar (you can also add or use Swiss). Securely wrap patties with the bacon weave as shown in picture below. Add hot dogs for the heads and legs, and make slits for the toes and tail.
Place burger turtles on an oven rack or BBQ grill. Cover loosely with foil. Bake for about 30 minutes near 400 degrees for a nice crispy finish.
Serve and watch your guests smile as they "dress" their own turtles!!
