These burgers are amazing. There is no reason to go out and have a "gourmet" burger...you can make one right at home. My husband and I have always played around with different ingredients to find the perfect burger, I think we finally have found our match. If you are not crazy about the spice, you can control that by not adding as much of the chili pepper. The other benefit about these are that you don't cook them on the grill. Cooking these burgers on a cast iron pan allow the meat to maintain all their delicious juices. Enjoy!
