      I'm not the best burger griller you'll meet, but this recipe is helping to change that! I tweaked a bit by not using a potato, dicing the onion and frying it and then adding it to the recipe. I prepared the rest of the recipe as is, substituting garlic powder for salt. This recipe yields a moist burger, even when cooked through. Thank you for posting.

      Since finding this recipe, I've tried several variations. First, I used a half and half mixture of ground chuck and pork sausage, making meatballs instead of hamburger patties. To this I added Paula Deens meatloaf topping (to 1 cup of ketchup add 3 tablespoons prepared mustard, 6 tablespoons brown sugar and stir). My wife, who is not particularly carnivorous, still makes yummy noises whenever it is mentioned, and I must admit I don't care as much for "plain" burgers anymore. I've been compiling a book of tried-and-true recipes for my daughter, recently married. This is definitely going in! Thank you, Christie.

      The potato and bread crumbs really helped to hold the burgers together. I used 1 small onion and about 1/3 of a green pepper that I grated in with the onion. I added about 1/2 tsp. garlic powder also. We had these as burger patties with ketchup along side garlic mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. Delicious!
