My husband makes the yummiest cheeseburgers ever, just ask him! No they are great and he likes to get creative with different toppings and seasonings, which I love because I get the night off from cooking plus get a delicious meal. He found this fun variation on the cheeseburger from Taste of Home, and I knew I had to share.
