Sometimes there's nothing better than a cheeseburger. Nothing else will satisfy that craving and adding french fries as a side just makes it that much better. There's only one problem with those cheesy patties, whether they come from the fast food joint or your own oven: A lot of times they're just too big for little hands to get around.
Simply take everything you love about a cheeseburger from the plastic-wrapped cheese to the delicious ground beef and roll it up into a little pocket.
because they're homemade, they're much better than the burgers that come in those little smiling boxes.
