Makes 8 burgers.
Yummy, yummy, in my tummy. I loved these burgers. And they do not taste like they are a Cooking LIGHT recipe. They were juicy, flavorful, and something new. The Mr. thought they were a little too soft inside (even when cooked through), so if that concerns you, up the amount of beef, but keep the other measurements as-is.
