    Amazing what a little bbq sauce (I used Kraft honey bbq sauce) can do to a burger! Loved the flavor of bbq sauce & cheese. My husband loved this & isn't normally a burger eater. My one complaint is that the burgers crumbled when I took them off the grill - maybe the bbq sauce made them too moist? Not a big deal to me, but the kiddos didn't like that they were messy.
