Taste O' The Garden Hamburgers

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Rick Young

An easy hamburger recipe that tastes great and, as a bonus, helps use up some of that zucchini!

I used saltine cracker crumbs in place of the bread crumbs and added about 2 tablespoons of green onion tops (chopped fine), since I had some in the garden. These are soooo good. I've fixed them 3 times already! The 2nd time I used yellow squash and white squash (look like ufo's) in place of the zucchini. Still turned out great. I'm planning on trying this cooked as a meatloaf. Have had 3 requests for this recipe. Thanks for posting.
