Comments 

This is great for kids but I have found that adults love this as well. I like to drink a chilled glass of Moscato with mine. If Moscato is too sweet for your liking try it with Sauvignon Blac..delish! I usually serve this with honey roasted potatoes, bacon ranch pasta salad and a creamy fruit salad afterwards.
Another great thing about this recipe is that is is soooo versatile. You can add toppings as you like. Additional toppings that you can add include; slice mushrooms, sliced green peppers, bacon, black/green olives, etc. Bascially top this burger with your favorite pizza toppings...try something different each time. There is plenty of room for experimenting with this. Enjoy!!
