"This was fantastic! I used the swiss cheese and tomatoes like you suggested and the flavor was just so great! The burger was exceptional - my boyfriend was skeptical at first but now, he loves them! I will definitely make again, thank you!"

"I used ground pork instead of ground beef, and ground venison with bacon . At first I thought there was too much milk as the patties I formed were flimsy. But once baked, I understand why. They came out firm, just the right amount of moisture. Fantastic flavor. I will make again."
