Yummy Almost Gourmet Burgers

Lori Ann


These burgers are a family favorite and the topping (condiments) all just blend together so well. Of course, you can opt to add more toppings or use the cheese you love. This combo just works well for us. Also, as you can see from some of my other recipes I am a fan of shallots, but onions can be used too. Add chips and a half sour pickle slice and this is burger heaven. Enjoy!
