Today, Joe and John are remaking an old fashioned beef burger that their grandmother used to make and naming it the Rita Burger after her. This delicious burger is made very moist and tender with bread soaked in milk. Joe wasn't sure about making a burger with soggy bread but end up really liking it. They even get their dad to do a taste test, watch to the end to see if he thinks it tastes like his mom's!
Recipe is available below as usual. We hope you enjoy and let us know if you try this at home!
