Platte County Fair Kraut Burgers

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Mysterygirl

Platte County in Missouri, USA is known for it's kraut burgers. Time and convenience have changed the way they serve them, but this is the old-fashioned way that everyone remembers from their childhood. With the exception of the seasoning, which is my touch. Even non-kraut lovers like these.
