surprise burgers


this recipe came from my father and he always prepares it for my birthday. it can take alot of counter space, however if you don't have it to spare-try doing one burger at a time. make sure you brown the burgers hot and then significantly reduce the heat to seal in the flavor. the tomato sauce is great with french fries as well!
