      Although I'm not a big fan of the mushroom unless it's raw, I must admit that I really enjoyed these ~ Think it was the cheeses & the Good Stuff Sauce that did it! Even had a great time making these burgers, too, even though they're not something I'll make very often considering the amount of fat & sodium & cholesterol they contain! Still, a guy's gotta splurge once in a while! [Tagged, made & reviewed in And the SECRET INGREDIENT Is . . . }
