Expert Tips

Ground turkey or pork instead of the ground beef is a nice change for these sandwiches.

These sandwiches are great for casual get-togethers or tailgating. Serve with chips and a tray of raw veggies and dip. Top off the meal with brownies.

Garlic pepper is a zesty blend of garlic powder and cracked pepper. Look for it with the other spices at your supermarket.
