Reviews for Papa Burger
"Great flavor and easy to make!"
"This was a juicy burger recipe, despite not being a whole lot of liquid in the recipe. The wine vinegar really came through and added nice flavor. I loved the toppings-especially the Thousand Island sauce. It cooked up very quickly on the stovetop. This is replacing my current hamburger recipe!"
