"This recipe is an oldie but goodie and enjoyed by children and adults alike. This is an excellent 'make ahead' to have prepared and ready to heat when you know your B.B.Q. will be filled with adult fare. Make extra because you'll find the youngsters will have to share these burgers with the adults ...they can't resist despite the adult choices on the menu!"
Serving Size: 1 (85 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 12
"The kids like sloppy joes but I never know how much they are really getting to eat besides the bun and sauce. So I decided to make this, went over really well although I did leave out the sugar in the recipe."
"Move over McDonalds, there's a new "special sauce" in town, slightly sweet, a little bit tangy & quite delish! I'll use Gerry's method when I use pre-made burgers for a large group but I prefer recipe #92021 when its just the 2 of us, topped with the usual condiments & Gerry's sauce. Thanx for sharing!"
"Wow!! Love the sauce, very similar to the one I use on my meatloaf - silly me, never thought to use it on hamburgers . I baked them and loved how it caramelized on the meat. Smelled fantastic, tasted better. Thanks Gerry! Made for Aus/NZ Swap 37."
"A GREAT sauce on hamburgers. I loved the flavor and will certainly try this again. Very Good!!!!! Prepared as a participant in the Aus/NZ Swap #31 Aug 2009 Event."
"Good hamburgers that were easy to make. Kept them in the crockpot,came home for lunch break, and had a couple for lunch. The sauce is what makes these hamburgers HAMBURGERS. Will make again. Made for AUS/nz swap."
"These were good and easy to make. I made them in the morning and kept them warm in the crock pot. I followed the recipe exactly as written and they were enjoyed by all."
"We enjoyed this sauce. A nice way to keep those burgers warm when you need to make a lot of them. Thanks for sharing your recipe."
"These are very tasty and good. I followed the ingredients per recipe. Made for ZWT4."
"The kids really loved these sauced hamburgers. I liked adding on after the burgers were cook. Thank you Made for ZWT 4--Zingo"
"These were excellent on burgers made from beef. We tried it on turkey burgers, but that didn't work out so well. I love the sauce just on its own!! Made for ZWT4: Family Picks."
"Great burger! I actually made another Zingo burger too for our 4th of July BBQ, (Recipe #239520 #239520), so used the directions (without the cream cheese filling) for the patties here. The sauce was great a a real hit here. We let everyone build their own burgers with this as the base. Thanks Gerry for another keeper. Made for ZWT4 Zingo."
"We loved this recipe~ The sauce was soo good. I chose to just top your sauce on our burger. Will be making this sauce again."
"We had our burgers hot off the grill, topped off with that wonderful BBQ sauce, and fully loaded. An all-around sauce that everyone enjoyed. Made for Zingo, ZWT4."
"I made up a regular patty using minced onion, some breadcrumbs and seasonings. This sauce is delicious and especially enjoyed by my second son who ended up cleaning out the pot with a spoon."
"This sauce is excellent so quick and easy to make and omg!! what an excellent addition to a good old fashioned burger. I made my own burgers as we like our burgers quite meaty. I topped with fried onion and mushrooms and then the sauce and it really was so much better than adding ketchup and mustard like we usually do. You can see from the photo just how big the burgers were and my growing like a weed teenage son actually got through 2 as he said "I just love this sacue mum." Great keeper as we are coming into BBQing weather and this will be enjoyed often. Thanks Gerry"
"Wow this was perfect Gerry, easily the best burgers dh & I have had in a long time. The bbq sauce is wonderful...just wonderful, sweet and tangy. I served our burgers with sweet onions and swiss cheese, that was all it needed Ummmm...I'm going to be making these often. Thanks so much for sharing what is a new family favourite. I can't wait to share it with the rest of the family."
"The sauce is the star of this recipe. It reminds me of one my mom used on meatballs so I had happy memories with my dinner. The sauce is sweet and the dry mustard adds a tiny taste of heat. We will have this again. Thanks Gerry! "
"Gerry, this is excellent. DH isn't real crazy for BBQ sauce but declared this a winner.It doesn't have such a strong flavor,just perfect. I also like the fact that the patties can be made up ahead of time.....what a time saver.I will be using this recipe often for sure. another winner Gerry!!! Thanks! "
"This sauce is wonderful, Gerry. I can't wait to try it on chicken too. I love the fact that you can make these burgers ahead of time and then all you have to do is heat them up. I plan on making this again at one of our pot luck dinners. This is a winner for sure. Thanks for sharing, Gerry999."
"Very good sauce, Gerry. It seems that with today's leaner hamburgers, they tend to dry out very easily. This sauce definately does the trick for that. It tastes very similar to a mild barbecue sauce. Everyone in our family enjoyed it. I bet it would also be great if you sub'd beer for the water and added some sliced onion. That would be close to what my parents did with our "Fry-out" fair when I was growing up."
