This was pretty decent, but eyeballing the hot sauce is terrible idea, please dont put hot sauce in your eyes unless you can tolerate spicyness
These were not bad, but.....and I am being very honest, as I like to rate recipes that I make truthfully. I found that the chili powder and Montreal Seasoning was overpowering. I also had a problem from keeping my patty from falling apart while cooking. I didn't make the fries, because I had mac & cheese with it. Thanks for posting.
This was our Sunday dinner and all I can say is "WOW"! I made only a couple of changes.... 1 tablespoon of chili powder to make it milder for my Dad and almost 3 year old twin granddaughters. I baked and tossed the Firey Fries which then seemed not too crispy so I put them back in the oven for another 10 minutes. Otherwise, followed the recipe with corn on the cob as another side and what a treat this dinner was! Thanks Robyn for posting this fantastic dinner recipe!
