Flavorful burgers for the grilling season....

Top Review by jenne

Great burgers! I found this recipe in Cooking Light and I am so glad you already had it posted here on; I made them last weekend! I decreased the thyme by half, as mine was pretty strong and I didn't want it to overpower the other flavors. I also used sherry wine, as I couldn't find sherry vinegar at the store and that worked fabulously and I don't think I would use the vinegar (since the blue cheese mayo already had that tang to it). Thanks for posting and wish I would have taken a picture of the beauties!
