I'd like to make some burgers with 50% ground bacon. I've found several recipes that describe how to mix the meat and cook it. One recipe has you bake the bacon slices until they are partially cooked, dice them up and mix with the ground beef. I'd like to grind the the raw bacon, mix it with the ground beef, form patties and grill or fry. I'm just not sure how exactly to grind the bacon. We have both a Kitchen Aid mixer with a meat grinder attachment and a stand alone small meat grinder. I've ground chunks of chuck roast for burgers and meatloaf and the butchers at my local market do it for me. They won't grind the bacon. Has anyone done this? Would it help if the bacon was slightly frozen? I appreciate your suggestions.
