The French Connection Burger

Sherri Williams


I made this wonderful burger a few months ago using Johnsonville Brats patties. The patties are seasoned perfectly. No mixing required. This is my version of a french onion soup made into one of the tastiest burgers I've ever had. I hope that you enjoy it. Grilling with Passion, sw:)
