This is NOT my original recipe, and these are NOT my photos. I don't even know to whom the credit for the recipe should be given ... whoever you are, it's great!

Ingredients

1 lb  lean ground beef
12  all-beef wieners, each divided in-half (total of 24 halves)
4 slc  sharp cheddar cheese
1 lb  bacon
 aluminum foil
4  hamburger buns
 condiments for burgers



Directions


 
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

 
Make four good-sized hamburger patties, nice and round and thick. Top w/ single slice of sharp cheddar cheese (this is optional, if you don't want cheese).

 
Wrap each beef pattie in bacon strips, making a basket weave as you go. Cover entire pattie.

 
Next, take the hot dog halves and make turtles' legs, head and tail. Cut the one for the tail at a diagonal on the end, so the tail looks "pointed". In the legs, put a few tiny 'slits' in the ends, so they will look like feet w/ claws after they bake.

 
Line a baking sheet (with sides on it!) with foil, and place a baking rack over the foil. Arrange your "turtles" on the baking rack.

Cook for 30 - 40 mins., in your pre-heated oven.
A little crispy, not too crunchy ... just the way a turtle ought to be, right?
