Reviews for Zippy Burgers
"These are very tasty and moist. You do not need any condiments with this burger. I used the beef broth. When you're making these, it seems that they are too moist to shape but they hold together very well."
"My husband has been looking for good burger recipes...this one is a keeper! We used the beef broth, too!"
"I used beef broth & they were very good..will try beer next time!"
