Looking for a new twist on a classic hamburger? Then this is for you! We tried these out tonight at our house and they were absolutely fantastic. Plus by making them at home (mostly with ingredients we had on hand), we saved tons of moo-lah by skipping a high-end burger joint . . . which means we pinched a few pennies towards the things we really love!
So, fire up the grill and get to cooking . . .
