Reviews for Stuffed Barbecue Burgers
"I agree with the first reviewer it is a bit too much filling unless you like really thick burgers which we don't. I halved the filling and it was plenty. But very delicious and a great change of pace!"
"Yummmmmmmy. These are the best stuffed burgers I've ever had and are huge hit with the hubby and son. My only suggestion is the filling is entirely too much for four burgers. I end up with 1/3 left and I've made two times. Next time will definitely make less for the filling. But still delish and forever in my roster for burger cravings!!"
"Yum! Just finished eating our burgers. We added fried egg and bacon...not so healthy here! They were delicious! Thanks for the new recipe!"
"Made these for a family get together and they were a huge hit. Very tasty."
"This really sounds good. After living in Texas for ten years, I will replace the green peppers, onion, tomato and mushrooms with Pico de Gallo. That will spice it up a little, I can't wait until we do these!"
