Reviews for All-American Hamburgers
"Fantastic and simple recipe. I added a little bit of liquid smoke, to really give it that smokey flavor. PERFECTO! Great recipe."
"I used Skyline HOT chili sauce and these turned out great, with a little heat/kick."
"This was excellent, very juicy... Will leave out the onions when fixing for a crowd since some people seem to really hate onions. Will saute onions and have on the side. Am fixing for a crowd for Super Bowl 46."
"We just had these for a quick lunch after church, very yummy! Everyone enjoyed them."
"Yum yum! We are currently living out of the country and these were like a yummy tast of home! We topped them with toasty rolls, tomatoe, cheddar cheese, lettuce and ketchup! We had potatoe salad and sauteed zucchini to top it off!"
"Just thought of something else...EVERYTHING is always better when you are camping. Thanks for sharing your favorite with us."
"oppss..typo..make that "enough ""
"chili sauce,worcestershire sauce,mustard,ketchup all have enought sodium in them. No salt is really needed plus it is much healthier for you without the added sodium!"
