Poor Man's Filet Mignon

This recipe comes from the magazine Country July 1991 edition. I hadn't made this in a long time and everyone really liked it.

Poor Man's Filet Mignon

2 pounds lean ground beef
4 slices bread, crumbled
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
2 teaspoons dried celery flakes
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 bottle (18 ounces) hickory smoke-flavored barbecue sauce, divided
2 pounds lean ground beef
12 bacon strips
In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients and 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Form into 12 patties. Wrap a bacon slice around the sides of each patty and secure with a toothpick.

Place on a greased rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until meat is no longer pink; basting frequently with remaining barbecue sauce the last 30 minutes. Yield: 12 servings.
