I'm not a big burger fan but these were excellent! The only change I made was to cook them on the BBQ. They held together well - you just have to be careful when turning. Thanx Mirj!

Did these on the grill last week. First lined the grill with aluminum foil, and used ground beef because that's wht I had, so didn't need either the egg or oil. So they had way more fat, which helped get the onion done. I only used 1/2 cup of chopped onion. 5 stars for the great onion taste in the hamburgers. These are much better than regular hamburgers, thanks Mirj!
