This is the way they used to be. 1/4 pound, char grilled, all beef, only with a little mayo, lettuce, onion, tomato, and pickles on a good bun with lots of nice, cheddar cheese.

Great burgers, but needed more seasoning. We used lean ground beef and used mustard, but other than that made as written. Loved the onions fixed this was. Thanks for sharing. Made for New Kids on the Block Tag Game.
