"Yes, they were OK ... I changed to 80% lean ground beef. That made it more moist. Also mixed in one egg, 2T steak sauce, 1t. garlic powder. Instead of the cheddar, used grated parmesan. It seemed to hold better in the burger! Second time I also put sliced mushrooms inside with the parmesan. Now that ... is a burger!"
