I am normally NOT a burger eater but these burgers are worth every calorie. Sometimes taste outweighs concerns over content. These are AMAZING!!!

This is sooo good! It's one of those things you allow yourself once in a while, even if it does mean an extra 30 minutes at the Gym tomorrow. The only change I made is to use ground beef (93 %) and Hot Italian Sausage. A bit of spice and a LOT of flavor.
