2 pounds lean ground beef (25% fat)
2 large cloves garlic, minced
4 ounces crumbled Feta Cheese with Basil & Tomato
1 Tablespoon Seasoning Salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
6 thick slices of Smokey Bacon (cut in half)

1. Preheat grill on high heat. 2. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, garlic, Feta cheese, Spike seasoning, white pepper, black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, eggs, and bread crumbs. Form into 6 even balls then flatten to make patties. Refrigerate until ready to grill. 3. Place bacon in a heat resistant pan and cook on grill. Remove bacon when done and drain fat leaving 1 tablespoon. Add sliced shallots to the pan and cook until tender. Set bacon and shallots aside until burgers are grilled. 4. Brush oil on the grate then add burgers. Cover grill and cook for 5 minutes per side, or until done. Add 1 slice of swiss cheese to each burger. 5. Lightly brush olive oil on inside of each sliced Kaiser roll. Place on grill and remove when toasted. When cheese is melted, place burger on bun, top with shallots, bacon and ketchup.
