These were greaat. I substituted a 1/4 cup bread crumbs for the slice of bread. A definite thumbs up.

This burger doesn't sound too Southern. It might be a meatloaf burger.

I thought these burgers were pretty good, but not "southern" as the name implies. I used dijon mustard, 1/4 c. of plain bread crumbs, 1 tsp. of garlic powder vs. garlic salt and used 1/4 tsp. each of salt and pepper. We grilled them and put them on toasted sesame rolls with cheddar cheese, lettuce, roasted tomato, thin sliced red onion, and little mayo. They were very juicy.

These are the only way i am going to make burgers now. My 4 yr old ate 2 of them and wanted more! These were the best and the moistest burgers I have ever made. I also added tome steak seasoning like I always do and I used 1/4 cup of bread crumbs and added a little bit of liquid smoke.

These were good, a bit too much worcestershire sauce. I pan fried these babies but they didn't completely hold together as well as I hoped. I use 93% lean ground beef.

These were very flavorful. I added extra breadcrumbs as it needed it to hold the burgers together. Also added some finely diced pickles instead of using them as a topping. The mustard really gives it a flavour hit. Thanks.

This is a good burger. I would have rated it a five, but it doesn't stick together when cooking. I cut the cooking time in half, and it was still cooked all the way through. Thanks!

These are just average. They are meatloaf burgers not really hamburgers. Even the great American chef James Beard's favorite hamburger recipe is a meatloaf burger. Anytime you add this much stuff to the meat it becomes meatloaf. Mine also did not stick together, but I thawed the meat in the microwave. To make them stick together better, try using fresh - never frozen - hamburger. Or, at least, don't thaw the meat in the microwave.
