    This is a recipe from Alton Brown's Good Eats. My kids love them. You can get very creative with these burgers. I use potato rolls with these. Enjoy.

      Very good! I used 1 lb ground pork and 1 pound ground beef. I didn't fold them, but made them thicker to start with. I just broiled them for 10 minutes in the jelly roll pan-- cut in to 15 squares and they fit perfectly on the Hawaiian Sweet dinner rolls-- yummy little sliders!

      These were darn good. The spice blend seems perfect. I served these on potato rolls and added bacon, cheese and bread and butter pickle slices. Yum.
