    Although tastes a lot like meatloaf, it was different and still a crowd pleaser.

    Tasteless and mushy. I threw it out.

    The meat was so soft it felt like you were eating mush. I did everything by the recipe I guess I needed more meat although I had 3 lbs.

    It sounded okay until you got to the catsup. Why ruin good food recipes with catsup?

    To Emmy25. The entire point of th erecipe review is to express what you thought of the recipe. It would not be much of a review if everyone felt the exact same way. It is an opinion. I think evarogers22's entry was not rude-just expressing her thoughts which may well differ from yours but doesn't make it wrong.

    Excellent burger. A nice delicious twist on a traditional burger. I love variety when it comes to grilling out!I only wish I could give star ratings to rude reviewers, such as Evarogers...

    This was the type of burger I grew up with and I was a teenager before I actually had a real burger...

    good burger when put all together. While cooking the burgers fell apart. Would make again.

    These burgers had a great flavor. You do have to really form the patties, grease the grill and carefully turn them during cooking.
