  • “Wonderful power packed burger.I am lucky that both Beeffalo & Buffalo are raised in this area and we can buy it fresh in one of our butcher shops.I apologize for taking some liberties with your recipe – I have a favorite Chili sauce that I used instead of making your sauce (sounds great too) and I added onion, mushrooms, cheese, lettuce & tomatoes as condiments.Thanks for a true Saturday Night Live Burger”
