Double the Sauce
My husband turned his nose up when he saw it cooking but he gave it a chance and ended up loving it! Make double the sauce to put on top and reserve some for dipping. I used Italian bread and red wine vinegar (instead of the Brandy). Not a huge hit with the kids though but I will be making it again anyway.
This is a good basic recipe. Family enjoyed it. Tastes good, presents well, economical. Next time I would put a dash of worchestershire sauce in the hamburger patties as well and give it a bit more zing!
