MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 7, 2013

Made these tonight, and we loved them. I didn't add bbq sauce to the meat (forgot that step) and sauteed the onion in a little bit of the bacon grease and butter. Wonderful. Next time, I'll try bleu cheese instead of cheddar. (my favorite burger from one of my local restaurants)
