      Well DH wanted his usual hamburger with mustard and the fixens. I made mine as per this recipe and absolutely loved it. I never eat a whole burger, and DH decided mine was much better and finished it off for me. Thanks for sharing this fantastic burger. :)

      Can't thank you enough for this recipe! Hubby loved it & it satisfied his "cravings" for Carl's Jr! I'm trying to duplicate some of his favorites at home to cut out fat/calories & also save a little money :-). I used a hot & spicy BBQ sauce, an 8oz extra lean burger patty, turkey bacon & pepperjack cheese. I also used a "wheat" hamburger bun that I didn't grill; just warmed it up. He really enjoyed it & asked for it again-a big plus since "imitations" aren't always easy to do! Thank u so much for sharing!
