Bargain recipe of the week- Kroger!

Bargain Meal of the Week

It is actually warm here in Ohio. ( Warm is above freezing to us Buckeyes :) ) In all seriousness, it reached the 70's this weekend. It made me want to grill out! In honor of the warm temps, I thought I would post a grilling recipe! These burgers sound delicious! Happy eating.....

Check out Stretching a Buck deals here to see more deals at Giant Eagle. I will not expense spices/oils since most of us have them on hand. W/c means with coupon.
