This was like all burger recipes really easy so I loved that! Usually though my family doesn't really like them for various reasons - too dry too bland etc but there were no complaints from this recipe. I used some leftover rice instead of the breadcrumbs because I didn't have any but the most important part is to get the best peperoni you can as that's where the flavour and the extra moistness comes from. All in all quick versatile and tasty - a keeper! Read More

I thought these were pretty good. I just thought they were missing a little something. I added a splash of steak sauce in them too but they just seem like they need something. I might make these again but add a few more spices. Thanks. Read More

Mmmmm....yummy! Nice and juicy. The pieces of pepperoni came out perfectly crispy. I just used 4 oz. of the pre-sliced pepperoni. Added an extra clove of garlic and 2 T water as someone suggested and perfect! Read More

These were delicious!! My husband loved them! I served these yummy burgers without buns but as the main dish. I also served french cut green beans some tater-tots (for fun!) and some homemade bread. My husband asked me to make them again soon! I might add a bit more garlic but I'm a huge garlic fan. I imagine if you upped the spices (add some Italian seasoning and more garlic you could used ground turkey and have some pepperoni turkey burgers. I may try that next time. Please try these--you'll love them! Read More
