Eufaula, OK

I learned to make these scrumpious burgers while over seas. A lot of the countries you are assigned to while in the Military, does not have fast food places to go for a tasty sandwich from home. This is when I made up my own recipe and while in the creation, I realized we were not alone! From then on, we invited other Military couples over to eat every time we had these burgers. When you can't buy your favorite burgers, create your own~
