Recipe by adagger

I got this recipe from Food Network. These burgers are absolutely the best burgers I have ever eaten. They are so moist, delicious, and very healthy. I suggest serving on a whole wheat bun with ketchup ontop. If you can't find jerk seasoning use cumin, it's delicious.

Top Review by Chef Emm

These burgers were pretty good. Very oniony. Per the other reviews, we added about a third of a cup of bread crumbs. We also added an extra tablespoon of jerk seasoning, but we still couldn't taste the jerk. Overall, these burgers were fairly satisfying with pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, sharp cheddar, and mayo as toppings. Happy grilling!
