I love burgers and this one is right up there - Loved it - Very moist and tasty I didn't cook the pepper rings or the onion just added them to the cooked burger before adding the cheese. I used skim milk Mozzarella and althought not as tasty as regulat mozza it was still delish. No oil used just a "No Oil" spray. Loved it - thanks Caroline
