Recipe by CrashCurran

A simple burger recipe that can be modified pretty much any way you want. Can substitute 1 lb of pork, lamb, veal, turkey or chicken for beef.

These were ok. They were too wet to cook well on the BBQ (a bunch of each burger was left on the grate.) I would liken these to the a meatloaf burger.
