MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 7, 2014

We did NOT care for these at all! Ours turned out SUPER oily even with 93% lean ground sirloin. We also thought the bacon (used center-cut) took over the flavor a bit. Sorry to say, but we WILL NOT be making these again.

I suspect the one star people did something wrong. This was really good, not at all dry.
