whiz burgers

When my brother and I were small Mom and Dad would take us to the fair every year. There was one hamburger stand that we never missed. The hamburgers were "different" and oh so good. Mom came home and duplicated them. Mom's version actually tasted better. And it was so simple! That was over 60 years ago and the whole family still loves them. Plus my 93-year old Mom gets to enjoy her great-grandchildren eating them.
