      I found this recipe on Food Network. All I can say is WOW! Rachael Ray really knows cooking! The flavors burst out. I didn't make the fries, but did both the dipping sauce and the topping. We used the dipping sauce to dip the burgers in. I used ground turkey. Man what a treat! My family loved this recipe.
