I thought the meat was good, but didn't like the sauce on the dressed lettuce. My wife didn't like them at all because "burgers should be all beef", but she didn't like the sauce either. We used Miracle Whip instead of mayo because we have no mayo because we don't like the flavor of mayo. I think it would have been better with some sweetness in...

It came out real good. I did cheat, though, added 2 celery stalks, 1 carrot, 4 oz of diced pancetta,, a leek, a couple cups of milk, and used chicken bouillon and water because I had no stock. "

Please don't yell at me, Anne, but I have to admit I cheated a bit. I used all beef, as that's what we had, and added 1 1/2 tsp of black pepper, and 1 tsp white pepper, and a tbsp of dried Italian seasoning. I would have used crushed red pepper, but ran out. I also used 1/2 cup sweet red wine and 1/2 cup milk instead of the water. I used about "

I wish I could figure out how to make these without powdered milk. It costs $7 a box, even at Aldi's. I've been trying with some warm water and some warmed milk, but keep having problems with them coming out too doughy in the middle. Any suggestions?"

I used 2 lb of ground chuck and added more onion, carrot, celery, garlic, pepper and salt to make up for what flavor would have been in the stock, and used 7 cups of water instead, then used the pressure cooker to brown the meat and added the onion, then the rest except the potatoes, and pressure cooked it 10 or 15 min, then removed the fat and ...

I'm putting this in because there are no other reviews. I don't want to knock your recipe since I didn't make it "as-is", but I really didn't understand why for a "low fat" recipe you'd put in 2/3 of a cup of oil?
