Reviews for French Tarragon Burgers
"Delicious! Will definitly make again"
"Be very careful. Tarragon is a very strong herb. It is also one of the few that neither gains or loses strength when dried. Cut the herb by at least half or you will be tasting nothing but. Otherwise the only thing i would add is a thin slice of goat cheese to finish the meat"
"This burger is absolutelu fabulous! A. Goins- Casa Grande,AZ"
