"Delicious, juicy burgers! I used ground turkey and turkey bacon (which I did not cook before I made the burgers, I just chopped it up and added it the meat). I used Worcestershire pub burger seasoning in place of the steak seasoning."

"Swapped out the mayo for sour cream, Penzey's Northwoods seasoning. Ended up using bacon as a topping rather than in the meat due to cook's error. Juicy, fantastic burger. Will definitely be in the regular rotation."

"maybe I made this wrong but it didnt turn out to good. I used mircule whip instead of mayo, maybe thats what made the sauce bad?"

"Absolutely delicious. I didn't have dried minced onion so I substituted minced onion soften in the microwave. I am anxious to make these again!"
