    Sound and tastes more like meatloaf.
    Very good but a little bit too much bread crumbs...would use something like 1/3 to 1/2 cup for this recipe next time.

    Turned out great and the family loved them, sprinkled with shredded sharp cheddar after flipping last side, made with homemade brioche hamburger buns (Also on Yummly) Turned out great!

    Great basic burger recipe. I used it to make sliders, and they tasted good but not special. I will definitely use this recipe again and again until I figure out how to make my burgers taste special. This recipe is perfect for someone like me that usually changes ingredients and measurements in a recipe.

    Good burger, but it doesn't need the breadcrumbs. Everything else is great! Personally, I prefer to have an all meat burger, with no need for fillers like breadcrumbs. I can see why this recipe has them as I used to make my burgers like this, but I found they are a lot better without the breadcrumbs!
