I have to hold my hands up and admit that I tweaked a little here....while mixing my meat ( I used 1/2lb for two of us) with a generous amount of freshly milled salt and black pepper, I also threw in a couple of tbsp of crispy fried onions from the tub ( the kind you get from Chinese supermarkets- a little like french fried I suppose). Once the patties were formed ( with a generous chunk of Colby in the centre!!) I sprinkled some BBQ Smokey Seasoning on each side ( GFresh for those of you in Oz!), then pan fried them.
The cheese seeped a little, but nothing too major. These were served on fresh bakery rolls with Sydney Mike's recipe# 458586#458586 and a rasher of bacon ......just awesome!!!
Made for PRMR.

The taste was good, but they did not work very well. The cheese boiled out and made a mess on the grill, which also made the hamburgers fall apart in the center.
