A really good burger recipe. I made mine in the George Foreman grill but I have to say I do prefer having a slice of cheese on top of the burger instead of inside the burger. Made for Zaar Cookbook tag game.

Yes, these are 5-star burgers. Pan sauteed them. They came out moist and tasty. Better than your average burger! Especially topped with a little extra cheese. Glad I came across this recipe Thanks . . . Janet
