No way did I want to give up juicy, delicious hamburgers when I learned that I needed to eat gluten-free. I made a few adjustments to my recipe to meet the requirements—and the family has also given these tasty burgers their hearty approval. —Peggy Gwillim, Strasbourg, Saskatchewan

"I'm confused, meat is naturally gluten-free so why all the additions? This seems more like a meatloaf and from reading the reviews, seems like a better way to cook the mixture. We make patty pure beef ourselves and sprinkle with salt, pepper and herbs de provence for the best grilled burgers! No mix-ins needed."

"Not impressed. The burgers fell apart way too easily, even when cooked the day they were prepared. We froze the extras, and freezing made them more apt to fall apart."

"May need more flour or even cornstarch until the burgers hold together. Sometimes the texture is tricky depending on the beef and moisture in other ingredients. The burgers do need to be quite stiff before they don't fall apart on the grill.

"Followed recipe to the "T". Grilled for over 10 minutes on the first side (not done at the 5 or 6 min. interval) and never got to the second side...every one fell into pieces as I tried to flip them. Great taste though..mixed some BBQ sauce with the remainder and made sloppy joes with it...not bad...any advice would be helpful Peggy. Thanks, Jim"
