Sunday Dinner Burgers
This is an awesome hamburger that I created for my family. It is full of flavor, it is easy to make, and always delicious. I have a big extended family and hamburgers make their appearence on the patio during Sunday dinners in the summer. We all contribute to the dinner (my sisters in law are all great cooks) Dinner for 50 no problem!
