What a way to make ground beef taste gourmet! This is spectacular! I followed the directions as written, but served the pattie on a large piece of garlic toast with the sauce drizzled over. My DD was standing next to me while it cooked drooling, she could not wait for it to be done. The patties are fantastic, and the sauce is heavenly. This will be made often in our house. A definite MUST TRY recipe!

Lorac, this was wonderful. I just adore balsamic vinegar and in this recipe it beautifully counters the richness of the parmesan cheese, egg yolks, butter and cream. I doubled the sauce ingredients, added lightly sauteed sliced mushrooms, and served the dish over freshly cooked pasta, garnished with a little chopped parsley. A dish fit for a king!

This recipe got the ultimate compliment! The BF asked "What is this called?" When I told him and asked why he wanted to know, he said "because its pretty good" (that is major!!) At first I thought the 1 cup of cheese was tooooo much. Now that I am eating these, I understand why there is so much! The patties are very tasty and even kind of gooey with cheese. I was a little leery of balsamic vinegar and cream but it works very well! I used vadalia onions and they were perfect in this recipe!Thanks for expanding my horizons!

Made this again tonight and it was still great. Like DayDream, doubled sauce for serving over Texas Toast. Thanks again for sharing.

Grilled the patties & finished in the oven. Husband said how much he liked dinner 3 times. That says it all. Thanks Lorac.

GREAT! My dh, two sons and their friend were here for supper, doubled recipe and there is nothing left. The cheese was great. As suggested, I did add mushrooms to the sauce. Next time I think I will add some garlic to the meat. WILL make again.

Loved the flavour the parmesan gave the patties and the sauce is just fantastic. Another favourite for Hubby. Even my 2yo loved the patties.

This recipe elevates the hamburger patty to fine dining. WOW, is about all I can think of to say. The meat was tender and the fresh parmesan adds a wonderful flavor. The sauce, which is the icing on the cake so to speak, is creamy and wonderfully tangy. The entire family thought this was very special so thanks from all of us.
