Peppered BBQ Hamburgers

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


My families favorite that we serve for big gatherings. Grandma always makes the best! She gave me her recipe, I tweaked a little by adding the peppered.
We have these in the slow cooker and serve on rolls, opened faced over crusty bread, or over mashed potatoes or rice.
