Sooooo good. I've had problems keeping them together but have found that making them the day before is the solution. Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

did not like this at all. I followed the recipe to the letter but it came out to wet for the meat to stay together and it tasted very salty. came out more like taco meat than hambugers. won't be trying this one again. Read More

These were awesome burgers I prepared the mixture the night before and didn't have any problem with the patties when cooking them the next day full of flavor and it didn't have that ground beef taste at all really good burger. Read More

Great burgers, the person who said that they added less cayenne pepper was using the wrong ingredient. 2 teaspoons cayenne would definitely be too too hot. It is too concentrated. The recipe refers to crushed red pepper, which is the type of pepper you see in the shaker jars at pizza restaurants. 2 teaspoons of crushed red pepper is just right, but of course it should be to the taste of those who are making them.

HELPFUL TIPS IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN: At 1 tsp of red pepper it was still spicy tasting and nothing I imagine any small child would like...and this is coming from someone who lives spicy and is Asian. I'd definitely cut it out or cut down to just 1/2t. Lastly I'd totally listen to those who made the night before and cooked the next day. Wow what a difference. I also cook this half the time covered and then take the cover off the last half and the juices just make a nice glace that come onto the burger and oh my yummy!!! This is my 5th time making these in 3 wks. I love eating them!!! Even better you don't have to use the grill to perfect them! Read More

This is my standard burger recipe now. Only thing I change is a lot less cayenne for my 2.5-year-old and I don't cook them in a pan. If you want to grill them make sure you refrigerate for at least a couple hours to firm them up. And on the Foreman make sure you flip/move them or they burn and stick to the grill. I've even made these without the honey mustard when I was out and they're still great. Read More
