And with the peanut butter and bacon, don't forget them sliced bananas! Granny always used them ripe bananas. True Southern Classic, I Garontee

I live in Florida. No one I know has ever put peanut butter on a burger. Bacon, yes. But NOT peanut butter.

Please tell me this is a typo. It must be because bacon and peanut butter are not listed anywhere in the ingredient list.I want to believe the burgers are good. Let’s not attack the recipe author for something over which she has no control, in case it was edited for publication.With that said...bacon and peanut butter might be good toppings. The rest of the world is doing all kind of fusion food. Don’t knock it till you try it.This, however, is definitely not Southern.

First, let me say, I have not made these. I have lived all my life in south Ga and never heard of anyone putting peanut butter on a hamburger.

It’s just like having meatloaf on a bun! I make these without the bun and fry up potatoes to go with them. Yum.

This is my kind of recipe! Easy and tasty! I used ground turkey and Worcestershire Pub burger seasoning instead of the ground beef and salt and pepper.

This was a very simple, yet flavorful recipe. This is now my go-to recipe for doing burgers on the grill. They held together very well and everyone was able to customize their burger just the way they liked it.
