This is a wonderful "Snappy" Burger. The meat Patty has a lovely texture- the sauce is delicious and I loved this burger! It goes into my favorite recipes

Oh Happy Day! I didn't know what to expect, but sometimes you hit the jackpot! This recipe had many unexpected ingredients, and I even added to those. But on the plate, it reminded us of an excellent meatloaf due to the extraordinary tomato sauce. I gave my own twist, by using ground moose meat, and -- to avoid a trip to the grocery -- dried cranberries instead of raisins. I used one and a half of Daily Inspiration's Crispy Chewy Gingersnaps for the crumbs. First off, any time we make a meatloaf, we will use this tomato sauce! Next, the interesting ingredients added to the burgers were a godsend for moose meat that would otherwise be very dense; DH could even detect the dried cranberries, and said, "Don't 'correct' that!" Instead of cooking spray, I used 1 Tablespoon of olive oil, which worked out great (I no longer try to minimize all fat during cooking; I "survived" the very low fat 90s!). The patties had to be very thick to fit all 6 into my deep-dish 5-qt skillet, but that was fortuitous as well; once we broke into a burger, the center was still a bit pink - perfect for wild game! DH is a very happy hunter with his new favorite treatment for moose meat.
