Open-Faced Bacon Burgers

Mmmmmm - who can pass up on a tasty bacon burger?  Whip up these fast little guys with some leftover strips of crispy bacon and a little surprise - English muffin half-buns.

I started by mixing my burgers and making patties about the size of the English muffins.  2 pounds of ground beef, 1/4 cup of Italian bread crumbs, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 egg, and a generous sprinkle of Mesquite grill seasoning over the top of each patty.  I browned these up to medium-well in my cast iron skillet.  While the burgers were cooking, I halved the English muffins and placed them face up on a cookie sheet in the broiler until they were well toasted.  I topped each with a slice of garden fresh tomato, a cooked burger patty, 3 small pieces of bacon and a bit of finely shredded mozzarella and popped them back in the broiler until the cheese was melted and browning on top.  This was a big hit and a great game or movie night dinner!
