I read about these burgers nearly 40 years ago. I've made them once a month since then because they're so delicious.—Agnes Golian, Garfield Heights, Ohio

    Added an egg to help bind the burgers based on the other review. It helped, but the patties still fell apart into a few large pieces. Next time I will chill the patties before cooking.

    This recipe need something to bind the burgers. They just fell apart, no matter how much I packed them. And, you wouldn't be able to grill these on a grill without them falling all over the place.
