We loved the sauce. It is wonderful and the red pepper sauce really makes it that much better. I probably will add more of it next time because we enjoy the heat. My DH kept trying to figure out what was in it. When I told him, he said something like "RRRLLLYYMMY" which I think meant "really yummy" mixed with a mouthful of burger! haha. Thanks for a really different way to serve burgers that is GREAT!

Although we may have clogged our arteries with this one it was well worth it. They were perfect! I did make my own hamburgers just ground beef, salt and pepper. But the sauce just melts perfectly and it doesn't need anything else. I had one and my son and DH ate 2 eacha nd I heard them growling or something. That means they were GREAT! Haha!
