We just grilled these hamburgers last night. All 3 boys, my husband and I all want to eat them again! Having so many eating I used ground turkey and ground beef mixed together to make the burgers. Then instead of adding all the spices to the hamburger mixture I just added 2 teaspoons of Montreal Steak Spices from McCormick. (if you haven't used this on your steaks, you are really missing out!) The only thing we realized is that we needed bigger buns than just regular hamburger buns! We also did not have them fall apart on the grill but had read the review and were more aware of it. Otherwise, I totally recommend these hamburgers. The little bit of extra work was well worth it.
