“This is a great no-guilt recipe. I sometimes substitute ground turkey,” explains Rachel Riccomini of Saint Marys, Kansas. “To make it even lighter, omit the rolls and use the burgers to top a salad!”

"These are delicious. I tripped the recipe to make enough for my family. I put the burger under the broiler and we topped them with the suggested toppings plus tomatoe. We served the burgers with fruit salad. It was a very yummy and easy week night meal."

"I love, Love, LOVE this recipe! I've made it several times and each time I just want to make the same thing for dinner a week later. The best part is these are fairly quick, just chop onions and garlic and throw the rest together. I cook these on a griddle, I don't have a grill, and they turn out FANTASTIC! They're also a burger that goes really well without a bun for my gluten-sensitivity. The only change I sometimes make this recipe is using garlic powder instead of minced when I am running short on time. Thank you so much for this recipe."

"I have made this several times and double this recipe when I make it because it is so delicious and great as leftovers. It is good on hamburger buns or cut up in a salad."
