Barbequed Hamburgers

Recipe by  

"This is an heirloom recipe from my grandmother. We used to beg my mom to make these. Not intended to be placed on a grill, they are best served over rice with a nice green salad."

My husband and I loved these burgers. They were so moist. I didn't have condensed milk so I just used regular and it was fine. Also I added 2 teaspoons of brown sugar. I was really suprised at how good they were. Thank-You

While this recipe was very good, it was much closer to meat loaf than to hamburgers.

So easy to make and so moist. Made hamburger sandwiches out of leftovers, with just mustard and dill pickle slices. Awesome.....

These were delicious and very easy to make. I made a sauce out of equal parts barbecue sauce and ketchup, and both my hubby and I really enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing!

Delicious alternative to the typical fried burger. I doubled the sauce ingredients, 'cause we like lots of sauce, and eliminated the sugar. Served with rice, it's great!

Too much like a bland meatloaf for us. Will stick with plain ole burgers with the works.

Absolutely AWESOME!!! I didn't have evaporated milk so used buttermilk and it turned out wonderfully!!! I am pregnant (and have a toddler and husband to feed) and constantly looking for quick, easy, yummy recipes to please my whole family. This will definitely be added to our rotation!!! My toddler loves it!!! Even my picky husband liked it!!!

My family doesn't like additives to burgers, so I just fried quality meat and added the sauce. I also thought the sauce was a bit too ketchup-y, so I added at least twice the worchestershire sauce and about a tablespoon of brown sugar. One more thing--in any recipe, don't skimp on the worchestershire sauce. I always use something like Lea & Perrins. It does make a difference.
