We love to have burgers at our house, we have them several times a month. Rachael Ray is the self-proclaimed burger queen and I one of her loyal subjects. I love experimenting with combinations of flavors and textures in my burgers. You can make amazing burgers in your own home for a fraction of the price of a nice burger joint (and about the same price at a puny burger off a $ menu at a fast food place). You can find the recipe here.
