These "Turtle Burgers" are just so very cute, creative, and fun that they definitely need to be shared with my entire ThriftyFun family and not just the recipe lovers! A little crispy and not too crunchy; just how a turtle should be ;-) Bon Appetit!

What a cute idea Deeli. I'm betting all the kids loved them. Very novel way of making a baconburger-hotdog, and I guess I'll have to try this one day. See how the future doctors of America will like them. LOL I can hear them "hooting" already.
Thanks to your mechanic and to you.
A big thumb's Up.
Awwwwww. They look just like turtles. What a creative way to serve kid's something they'll enjoy and hopefully will eat. I would like one too. TeeHee.
Thank you for sharing.
How bad for you can these possibly be! But how fun to make for a family/friend BBQ! Great idea, thanks for sharing, can't wait to try it on my grand kids!
This would be a great low carb option at a cookout, if you used the right hotdogs. I wonder how many odd looks I would get if I made these. lol
Hello Deeli, Both my partner and I love turtles (the real ones) I wonder if we would have a problem eating these little guys! ;) They are just way too cute!
Mmmmm, bacon. They look delicious, but I'll bet you could hear your arteries plugging up. What the hey, I'm going to try them anyway!
A little hint for those a bit new to cooking; place on an oven-proof rack ON A RIMMED BAKING SHEET - - NOT an oven rack, as the grease would not only drip into the floor of the oven, but would likely start a fire. I know many of us would instinctively know this, but I have taught enough people to cook to grasp how this might be excitedly read, understood and enthusiastically followed by those new to it.
If I hadn't been a vegetarian for 30+ years, I would love to make these. How much fun. I am even tempted to make them for a 'friends-get-together'.....but then I'd have remorse......
Oh well, I love the cute idea. Know that this is a big compliment coming from a dedicated vegetarian. I love the creativity! :-)
