Cool burger recipe. We used regular hamburger buns and thought it worked out real well. That fennel really gives a great flavor which my husband and I liked. Kind of comes alive in your mouth. Thanks for something different and delicious.

These burgers were excellent. My brother had a problem dethawing the meat so we ended up with loose meat instead of burgers. The taste was excellent.
