  • 5 slices bacon
  • 1 lb. ground beef

  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped pimento stuffed olives
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green pepper
  • Directions

    In a skillet, partially cook bacon. Drain on paper toweling. Pat ground beef on waxed paper to a 12×7 ½ x ¼ inch rectangle. Sprinkle lightly with salt and lemon pepper. Top with Parmesan cheese. Combine mushrooms, olives, onion and green pepper; sprinkle evenly over meat. Roll up jelly-roll fashion, starting from the short end. Cut into 1 ½ inch slices. Wrap edge of each slice with a strip of partially cooked bacon, securing with wooden picks. Grill over medium coals 8 minutes. Turn and grill 8 minutes more. Serve on a platter with cherry tomatoes and parsley sprigs, if desired.
