If you place all the sauces in separate dishes and place them on the table for your guests any allergies they may have will not stop them from eating. Also your meat flavor is not compromised by ingredients placed into the meat. Mixing the beef and Buffalo will dramaticly lessen the fat content and increase the flavor. You can spread a different sauce on each side of the bun without mixing the flavors and place a leaf of lettuce on top of each sauce. For the purests of course. You can now eat your burger without a whole slice of tomato or onion sliding onto your lap. Please Note: Due to the ingredient limitations, I was not able to share my homemde ranch dressing...a unique japanese soy dressing.... a japanese "Kagome" and a Teriyaki.... sauces all home made. If I am one of the "Chosen" Ten these sauces will be included. As it is I had to take a small license on the ingredients to include "just" the basics. You wanted a "better burger"..I do hope you can forgive me. Respectfully, Paul
