Did you know this popular food item had it's own day? There really is a day for everything, lol.
In honour of national Hamburger Day, I thought I'd share a recipe my family and I tried this week. It was SO good! I mean look at it!!!
I hope you enjoy as much as we did! *NOTE: We didn't add the mushrooms and they were still super yummy!
