    We made these last night. My BF didn't mix any seasonings with the burgers, he just made patties and poured the sauce over them. We did make rings out of aluminum foil for the burgers to sit on, as we didn't want them cooked in "grease." These turned out really good! My BF believes that this is how burgers should be made from now on, which is fine by me (and I'm not even a burger person!) They were moist and tender; just absolutely perfect! I'm already thinking about the seasonings I can add next time. Thanks for this recipe!

    I added 1/4 of sriracha sauce to the mixture for some added kick and cooked it on low for 6 hours and it turned out great

    used the grill instead of a skillet. burgers fell apart, didnt see that coming. although they ended up in chunks they were delicious.

    Yummy! I used ground turkey and other than that, followed exactly! Really good burgers - DH said they tasted like sloppy joes! Thanks for sharing!

    Made as posted, only changed to plain panko crumbs, adding 1/2 tsp of Mortons Natures Seasons. Browned the patties and used Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce and cooked on low. These were saucy and tender and the BBQ smell filled the kitchen. YUM! Thanks for posting Celebration. Made for I recommend Tag Game.
