      Hello, Gypsy Rose Lee (appreciate your name!)

      thank you kindly for your "tasty" comments. I too am an onion freak. White or purple. Even the shallots in early spring. I am there. Onions need to be designated the nation's No. 1 food! I will be glad to represent us onions lovers in a congressional hearing if you will pay for my airfare up there. And talk up our love for onions.

      And mention HubPages on national TV!!!!


      PS think about it.

      Hi Kenneth You had me with vidalia onions. I have to admit..sometimes I would grill some thick bread and have a vidalia onion sandwich.

      This hobo burger looks like it is fit for a king. My son in law and grandson will love these. Thank you for sharing.

      Hi, unknown spy . . .thanks so much for your "tasty" comments. I admit it. These are to die for. The burgers. Not my amateur style of publishing a recipe. Use this the next time you get together with friends and see the smiles on the faces as they eat them. Let me know how it goes.

      My Dear Friend, Connie . . .where in this hub did I say my burgers pack on the pounds? I will not be dishonest. They will. Some. If you eat like me, wild and unbridled . . .LOL, but you can eat them WITHOUT the bun and just eat the delicious patty with lettuce, cheese and fixings. I might design a diet version for you, which I DOUBT that you need. Thanks for being a Special Friend and Follower, Connie.
