Another winner for my Sat night burger! The combination of spices enhanced the meat flavor but did not over power it. The amount of meat only allowed 1/2" patties but because I used half buffalo and half lean beef the patties did not shrink and covered the bun nicely. The burgers were served with sliced tomatoes, sweet onions, horse radish, Dijon mustard & sauted mushrooms. I sprinkled my oven fries with "Beef Jerk" spice - Great Burger night Thanks Dancer

This is going in our rotation for burgers. I think I may have put a tad big too much thyme in the burger but it was still great tasting. We only ate the meat -- no buns. We're cutting out carbs for awhile.
