"I love burgers and love trying every kind you can imagine - Lamb, pork, chicken and of course beef. I also like lots of condiments so I made up this tasty monster. I like making only 3 burgers from a pound but if you like them smaller make 4. Use only good quality lean beef. I use Denzil's Kamakazi hot sauce it is a prize winning sauce. Use good quality buns. Serve with oven fries."

Definitely a wow of a burger! The ingredients came together to make for incredibly great tasting hamburger patties. Topped with the lovely mushrooms along with all my favs made for a great lunch. I froze the extra patties which will see to another great burger day. So a repeatable!
