Recipe by CookinMamaof3

I got these from Ina Garten on FoodNetwork. They are so good cooked on the grill, but could also be broiled. BEWARE: these have plenty of fat--not for the faint of heart!LOL

Yes, my husband says these hamburgers our wonderful! They were very easy to make and everyone enjoyed eating them--very juicy and flavorful. I think this will become my standard hamburger recipe. Thanks, CookinMamaof2!
