Prosciutto Wrapped Burgers

This is an awesome recipe for flavouring up hamburgers that you can bake in the oven; although it would also work great on the barbecue. Load the burger up with your favourites on a bun or cut out the extra carbs and serve minus the bun with a side salad. I like to use prosciutto on burgers instead of bacon as it is a bit leaner and tastes great.

*Barbeque time will be less. 
*TIP-  When mixing ingredients into ground beef don't over mix; over mixing can cause tough burgers.

Mix ingredients together

Form into thick patties

Cover with prosciutto and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 35-40 minutes or desired burger temperature. I like mine cooked to 165. Also great for barbecue!
