MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 30, 2009

One of the best burger recipes I've tried in a long time. My son even loves it. You can throw this together most days with stuff you have in the fridge. It's wonderful! Not sure if it would work well on the grill or not. The burgers sometimes act like they want to come apart. But made on the Foreman grill, they are great.
