Reviews for French Tarragon Burgers
"Delicious! Will definitly make again"
"Be very careful. Tarragon is a very strong herb. It is also one of the few that neither gains or loses strength when dried. Cut the herb by at least half or you will be tasting nothing but. Otherwise the only thing i would add is a thin slice of goat cheese to finish the meat"
"I LOVED the mayo spread-I am actually using it for sandwiches as well. And the shallots really add to the burger!"
"This burger is absolutelu fabulous! A. Goins- Casa Grande,AZ"
