You won’t believe how juicy these burgers are. The secret is the apple cider; it’s just enough to keep everything moist. Your guests will enjoy the flavor, yet won’t be able to put their finger on what it is. —Shelly Bevington-Fisher, Hermiston, Oregon

"These burgers received rave reviews from my bunch! They loved the flavor and juiciness and insisted this recipe go into my permanent collection. Can't wait to pass this one on."

"These burgers were tasty, though I think I may have cooked them a little longer than needed. I omitted the sausage and decreased the amount of juice. May try them with the sausage next time. I'd make this one again! (I also baked the burgers instead of frying them.)"

"Went to the cooking show and am trying recipes from the show and also from the magazines given out. I agree they are somewhat moist. I do think I cooked mine a little longer than they said because I was worried about the sausage in them. I didn't think they were that fabulous though."

"I can't believe I'm the first to review these delicious burgers! I very honestly have never had such a juicy tasty burger. I even made them into burger steaks with a brown beef gravy. My family LOVED them both ways! I've shared the recipe and everyone who has tried it is amazed and passes the recipe to others. :)"
