Prepped the shallots and formed the burgers in the morning. Used the Foreman grill. Put the patties on, topped each with sprigs of thyme and grilled til medium rare, discarding thyme before topping with low-fat cheddar. Used blend of 3 tbs fat-free mayo and 1tbs chile sauce rather than straight mayo. Pretty good dinner.

If you love a good burger this is for you!! I prepared everything exactly as written in the recipe. When I'm watching my calories, what I love is flavorful foods that totally satisfy. This burger completely satisfied that burger craving. Eat it slowly and savor all the interesting favors. Had a side of fresh mixed berries with the burger. Delizioso!

"Sinfully delicious" said my husband. Definitely a keeper, made it just as recipe stated. I left out the bun on mine, but it was still absolutely delish!

This was fabulous. The shallots were delicious and the meat was nice and juicy. I did not use the mayo, just used ketchup instead but it was delicious. Had with corn on the cob and some asparagus!

Great recipe, real "gourmet" burgers

Excellent burgers! I made sliders as I had slider rolls in the freezer. I also grilled them outside rather than cook them in a skillet. Will make again.

In all fairness I could not give this five stars because I substituted Jarlsberg cheese for the cheddar so therefore am not reviewing as written. That said, every other part of it was outstanding and the shallots are such a different taste than onions! My husband is particular about his burgers and said it was "the best burger of the summer". :) We did add a sliced tomato as one other reviewer recommended. We will make this again with friends over.

Just a damn fine burger. Adding a slice of fresh summer tomato makes it even better. I grilled it at med-hi (3 second hand count) for 3 minutes per side, covered, and it came out perfect. Given the overall ease of prep, this will be a go to burger for grilling season.
