      This is a wonderful burger recipe. Tons of flavor, juicy and easy to put together. I left out the diced red pepper, but followed the rest of the recipe as written. I look forward to making this recipe often. Tip: After forming your burger patty, make an indentation in the center of the patty. This will keep your hamburger patty from swelling up into a ball as you cook it. Made for Jan 2010 Aussie/NZ Swap.

      I made these last night and it was a 5 star all around. I did use yellow pepper instead of the red and I forgot to put the cheddar cheese on top, and we still gave it 5 stars, I can't wait for next time with the cheddar cheese. These are very moist burgers with lots of flavor. Thank you so much for sharing.

      VERY good! The onion turned out a bit too sweet so i'll just have to double the onion next time! (besides being a bit sweet, they were so yummy!) I will omit the pepper next time and add some hot paprika or something else to add a bit more spice to the burgers. Definately a keeper! Made for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers, ZWT4 Oh, i almost forgot, i used a bit of leftover meat this morning, and that was so delicious! so it might be a tip to make it the day before and keep refrigerated so the flavors really come out.
