Info
I was looking for a tasty looking burger recipe and this one certainly fit the bill. The burgers received breadcrumbs, Dijon mustard, onions, garlic , Italian parsley & egg. The toppings were tomatoes, sliced grilled onions and bacon. I changed the grilled onions to caramelized onions, but other than that, I made the recipe as written. This was a case of you don't mess with a good, no great thing, These burgers were a handful but were worth the effort.
