    These were really good! We grilled these and I doubled the recipe and substituted Italian panko crumbs for the oats and sweet relish instead of dill since that's what I had on hand. They were delicious and we will definitely make them again this summer! They're perfect on sweet slider buns! Thank you TOH Test Kitchen.....another winner! Volunteer Field Editor

    Very good, quick and easy. I served these with tater-tots for a simple weeknight meal.

    My husband gave these a 5, but my daughter said they were OK. My daughter's opinion might be the fact that see dislikes beef, but will eat it if I make it. I liked the ease of making these, and of broiling them. I have frozen about four of them so that we can have an easier dinner some night when we are busy. I do NOT like cheeseburgers, so mine did not have cheese, but we put cheese on the rest.Thanks for the recipe. This one is making it into our dinner rotation.Yolanda
