    CJAY's Note:

    My friends call me the “cheeseburger queen” because I would eat one every day if I could. I love to experiment with different ways to make my burgers and came up with this one especially for RSC # 16.

      Excellent flavorful burgers! This was our favorite of four contest recipes we tried. I doubled the recipe using mild Italian sausage and Sweet Baby Ray's original barbecue sauce. I was wary about the white pepper amount but it was great. I also wondered about the cornflakes in it but they did give it a pleasant crunch throughout and helped hold it together. I made 6 larger burgers out of the mix. The texture was very wet and I wondered if they would fall apart on the grill but they held together. We had some trouble with our charcoal barbecue...we had to put the burgers back on the grill because they weren't cooked in the middle and I wanted them cooked through because of the pork in them but they already had cheese on them so the underside got blackened...this was completely our fault though and the burgers still tasted great despite it. The sauce was good and I loved the arugula on it...I did put a pile of arugula not just 2 measly leaves. I wonder why you didn't use the contest ingredient sweet onion instead of white onion it would have went well with the other flavors. All in all this was a darn good burger that my Hubby and I loved. Excellent job and good luck in the contest.
