    Bergy's Note:

    If you like Sauerkraut you'll love this burger. Hey even if you don't this may get you loving it! The recipe is for one burger Just keep multiplying it for as many as you want. I like to serve this burger with a small lettuce Tomato Onion salad, mushrooms on the side and Baking stone oven fries. I made this burger tonight and really loved it - hope you'll try it and love it too.

      Everyone loved this, and knowing this is your recipe, I am not a bit surprised as I can count on you for that. I served this with fries and it made a great quick weeknight meal (Wednesday is a busy evening for us). Once again thanks! This goes in my keeper file. L~S

      We had these for lunch today on homemade rye buns. Excellent choice for my family! I did make 1/4 lb patties instead of 6oz so ended up just topping each patty with the swiss cheese, sauerkraut, bacon, and jalapenos. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
