libba's famous bacon serrano burgers

My sister has shared many a great recipe with me, but this one is one of my favorites. Serrano peppers have just enough kick to make the burger interesting, but in no way overwhelm you with spiciness. I think the bacon makes the burgers extra juicy, which means you can play around with different combinations of lean meat. This weekend my sister made a huge batch for our family cookout (2 # bison, 1 # extra lean ground beef), and surprisingly, they were still incredibly juicy.

You can serve these plain on kaiser rolls, or with mayo, sauteed onions, sauteed mushrooms, etc. It really doesn't need much though, with so much flavor the burger stands alone.

For every one pound of meat, mix in 8 slices of crumbled (cooked) bacon, 3-5 serrano peppers (make sure to remove all the seeds, and finely chop), 1 egg, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, and 1-2 T milk. Mix well by hand, and form into 3-4 patties, depending on how big you like your burgers.
