Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Directions 1 Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. 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).

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Cook for 30 - 40 mins., in your pre-heated oven.

  7. A little crispy, not too crunchy ... just the way a turtle ought to be, right?
