“These burgers are SO good. Papa has big hands and makes these into the most delicious, colossal burgers you've ever had. Hard to improve on, but maybe a pinch of fresh thyme would be nice. I'd hate to mess these up, but maybe a bit of some kind of cheese mixed into the filling would be good too. Unsure yields - depends on how big you like 'em.”
