These burgers are simple and delicious. My guy's Aunt Kathy made these when I first met him. I recently asked for the recipe and added my twist (different seasoning & and a sauce.
Her version is made with mayo but you can replace the sauce with BBQ sauce or whatever you like. I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does.
