Reviews for Cheddar & Bacon Burgers
"the only thing I changed was I only added a fourth of the onion mixture - used real onions instead and made some with swiss cheese as my family prefers that. very tasty and on my "favorite: list"
"So simple to make, yet beyond amazing taste! My family couldn't get over how juicy and flavorful they were! I did make a couple minor changes. I reserved about 2 Tbsp of the bacon drippings and added it to the mixture. I also replaced the cheddar with a swiss and gruyere blend and almost doubled the amount of cheese. In my opinion more cheese makes everything better ;) I will be making these again!"
"these burgers are so simple, I wonder how I needed a recipe. They are also super delicious! I won't be buying frozen burgers again. These burgers won't disappoint. Thanks for sharing."
