1.Mix together: Hamburger, Cheese, Chopped onion,Spices 2.Make four 1/4 pound patties 3.Cross weave four strips of bacon, placing a patty on the bacon's center.
Here I used more that four slices, but I have come to find that four slices works best.
Mix together the preserves and BBQ sauce. Baste the hamburger meat. This will be done for each hamburger. You will also use this sauce for the outside before and during cooking.
Use 2 1/2 hotdogs for each turtle. (That's 5 halves of hotdogs.) place the hotdogs in the hamburger as above. Weave the rest of the bacon over the hamburger/hotdog combo. Hold in place with toothpicks
Preheat the oven to 400-425 degrees. Place the turtles on a rack and pan. Baste with the sauce and place in the oven.
Cook until the meat reaches about 180 degrees. About half way through the cooking time pull out and baste again.
The final product can be eaten on a bun or as is. Enjoy your turtle-shaped meat, meat, meat sandwich.
