Reviews for Stuffed Burger Bundles
"I made this tonight for my family. I omitted the mushrooms, made the sauce according to directions but felt it needed a little something, so I added some beef broth, paprika and a dash of Kitchen Bouquet. The sauce was the best part of the meal. The burgers were dry. Next time I will use my own recipe for the burgers. (I use a can of french onion soup in my burgers with bread crumbs.) They are always moist. I won't use the thyme next time either. I didn't care for that flavor in the meat."
"These were easy to make and very tasty. My 6 yr old daughter who is very picky ate two minus the mushroom sauce. I added a 1/2 cup of water to the mushroom sauce to make it creamier."
"I've been making this for years but add the sauce before cooking it in the oven. Never is it dried out that way."
"I was not very fond (neither was my family) of the sauce. I did not add mushrooms as my family wouldn't even try it with them added. The meat was dry and the sauce was too thick....I even added a little milk to compensate for the lack of mushroom juice. Sorry, I was hoping this would be better than it was. :("
"Debbie ~ This sounds and looks wonderful! I am however, wondering why Taste of Home did NOT add some color to the plate before they took the photo!! Green beans, broccoli or carrots would have accented the burger and potatoes very nicely!"
"[quote user="lvizy"]Sounds yummy, but we don't eat mushrooms, do you have any substitution suggestions? [/quote] You could saute onions in place of the mushrooms and use cream of celery or cream of onion soup instead."
"Sounds yummy, but we don't eat mushrooms, do you have any substitution suggestions?"
"Really yummy! I added a beef boulion cube to the gravy. Adding a bit of milk made my gravy too soupy. I didn't have any thyme either so I substituted basil and garlic. We really enjoyed this meal."
"Haven't tried this recipe yet but, from one Kingsburg Debbie to another Kingsburg Debbie (in SF...ugggg!!) this looks like a great "comfort food" recipe and just what we need tonight. Thanks"
"Good comfort food on a rainy cold night. I used venison burger and my homemade condensed cream of mushroom and served w/ cottage mashed potatoes."
"My family liked this. I reduced the thyme by half and thinned the sauce with milk. Could not stretch the meat to pinch together so I just topped the stuffing with the other patty."
"This was pretty good. I added a little skim milk to the sauce to thin it out a little bit; other than that I followed the recipe. I'm surprised to see the comment about it being dry as ours was very moist."
"We did't care for this at all. It was very dry even with the gravy."
"Not a huge fan of thyme so I used garlic powder instead. My husband said its a keeper! Went so fast, next time I'll double the recipe."
