    Family favorite! Great flavor and uses simple ingredients that I always have on hand. Sometimes I substitute dried minced onion for the fresh. My guys like American cheese, I prefer cheddar. Always a hit!

    Great burgers! Really good flavor, simple and quick to make. I like the fact there are no breadcrumbs in this recipe - just great flavors. Everyone enjoyed and will add this to our rotation.

    I usually add breadcrumbs or egg to my burgers to hold together. But this recipe is much more simple and tasty! Entire family enjoyed. A winner.

    Fantastic recipe! I added onion soup mix to the mixture and they were the best burgers we ever had!

    These burgers have a great flavor and are very juicy! The flavor from the chili sauce is subtle, yet is just enough to give these burgers a different taste. I was a little skeptical about adding mustard, but it works! A great burger recipe that I would make again!

    Fantastic and simple recipe. I added a little bit of liquid smoke, to really give it that smokey flavor. PERFECTO! Great recipe.
