"I have made these several times now. The whole family loves them. The wine and vegetables give these burgers a sophisticated flavor. I usually mix this up and shape the patties the night before to cut down on dinner prep the day I cook them."

"We make ours without the mushrooms and BBQ sauce. We let them sit for more than an hour just to marinate them a little longer. They are yummy and my kids love them."
