Comments 

My wife is from Italy & I'm american. These burgers mix the love of both cultures. Notice the red, white & green ingredients, which symbolize the Italian flag. Note my father in law & I make 300 gallons of wine each year. It is affectionately called dago red & dago white. It's awesome and so are these burgers!
