  • 5 Tbsp franks hot sauce
  • 3oz softened light cream cheese
  • 2oz cooked, shredded or diced chicken
  • 2 Tbsp light ranch dressing
  • ¼ cup light shredded cheese
  • 4 slices low point bacon (I used Oscar Mayer center cut)
Instructions
  1. Heat up grill on low-med.
  2. In a bowl mix your lean ground beef, cajun, salt & pepper, bread crumbs and 2 Tbsp franks hot sauce (keep other 3T aside)
  3. Divide meat mixture into 4 equal rounds, using either a pop can, beer can or even a glass, push down on balls of meat to make indents in the middle.
  4. Wrap each burger with a slice of bacon.
  5. In a small bowl mix your cream cheese, ranch, 3T franks hot sauce, chicken and shredded cheese.
  6. Scoop mixture into your 4 burgers
  7. Cook on grill, they need to cook on low indirect heat, so don't keep opening the lid, you want them cooking all around and not burning the bottom.. Grill for at least one hour, you can check on them after 30 minutes, if need be turn heat up slightly.
  8. Makes 4 burgers at 8 smart points each..

    Ok Kate you can’t pop recipes on here like this while we are driving home from vacation. A) I yelled “dear Lord look at that!” And my husband jerked the wheel because he thought something was wrong. B) I have zip in the fridge and won’t be to a grocery until Wednesday. You’re killing me hahaha ?

    Do you have cooking instructions for those of us without grills? I assume I can do this in the oven.

      I think you can slow cook them in the oven, I would suggest using some foil as the bacon will be messy, I’d try around 300F and see how they do

        I did them in the oven at 325F for one hour and 10 minutes.
        Turned out great.

          Colleen, did you put them on a cookie sheet, in a glass casserole dish, or something different?

    These look AMAZING!! Can’t wait to try them. I don’t know much about grilling, but I’m assuming you can’t flip these over? Because then all the chicken would fall out.

      Correct, that’s why you slow cook over low, you don’t want the bottoms burning but still need time for the bacon to cook.. Hope you enjoy them ๐Ÿ™‚

    These were amazing! It’s hard to find something both myself and my family will eat.
    I made the recipe a bit lighter so I could have two with my veggies.
    I used ground turkey (chicken would work too)
    I lost the cream cheese as I found the ranch dressing made it creamy enough.
    I only sprinkled the top of the burgers with shredded cheese.
    Finally I used turkey bacon instead of pork.

    These look delicious and I’m really looking forward to trying them! I just want to make sure I’m reading those ingredient amounts correct, 24 oz of lean ground beef and 2 oz of chicken?

    Thanks for sharing all of your recipes so freely!!
