Yoop- These were yummy! I made no changes except to divide it in half since there are only two of us. I topped each burger with a slice of pepper jack cheese and let it melt before I took them off of the grill. They had a hint of sweetness that was very interesting. A great variation of a plain ol' burger!

Super Dooper Mark from Yooperland! Very tasty burger indeed. I added mushrooms with the onions/balsamic - excellent. Served with Oven Stone Fries and a green salad. Wonderful Saturday night Feast. Thanks for a keeper
